Three rhinoceroses made a short bid for freedom on Thursday after they slipped out of a side gate at the Ramat Gan Safari.
The trio, named Rihanna, Keren Peles and Karnivala, plodded into the street where they were spotted by astonished joggers out for a morning run, the Hebrew-language Ynet news site reported.
The safari explained that a keeper had dozed off for a few minutes and the three seized the opportunity to make their escape.
Director of the Ramat Gan Safari Yehuda Bar saved the day by leading the beasts back to safety.
Rihanna was named exactly 2 years ago on January 1, 2013, in honor of the Jamaican-born pop singer, Rihanna. Keren Peles was named after the Israeli singer of the same title. Karnivala is an alteration of the Hebrew word for rhinoceros, karnaf.
