In what will obviously be the last installment of my escaped Tasmanian Devils series I am happy to report that Ghengis has been recaptured. (Herald-Sun)
For those of you who have not been keeping up with this news, on the 16th of October three Tassie Devils escaped from their enclosure in Perth when a fallen tree flattened the fence.
Scratchy was recaptured by two men and managed to do serious damage to a bathroom wall before the zoo owner arrived to take him home. Itchy was the next one found and he also did his best to get away again but was safely returned.
Ghengis was obviously not as eager to continue his adventure as the others and was picked up without incident. Either that or the people who found him had also read the other news articles and realized that they would have to be more careful of their walls and pet cages than the previous rescuers.
Poor Ghengis is now going home for a good feed and a rest before being reunited with his friends. I wonder if this adventure will make them shyer of making a break for it next time or now they have had a taste of freedom will they be making a rush at every open gate? 🙂
