Zoo Animals Roam The Streets After Heavy Flooding In Tbilisi

Last night heavy rainfall caused major flooding in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia.
As a result of this flooding, some cages at Tbilisi zoo were damaged and animals such as bears, wolves, tigers, lions and hippos escaped and were left to roam the streets.
This in turn gave the world some very surreal pictures.
