A zoo in Chengdu, Sichuan province, staged its first ever animal escape drill Thursday with a staff member dressed in a costume of "Tigger" from Disney's Winnie the Pooh playing the tiger at large.

The drill was aimed to enhance the zoo's capability of emergency handling and safeguarding the staff and tourists.
