Zoos are where you go to look at "them," the animals. But not in this video of a zoo in Amsterdam. Here, differences melt away, and all the animals, including the ones with hats, coats and strollers, are just as curious, just as odd, just as silly as the monkeys, hippos and tigers.

It's a bizarre scene in Zanesville, Ohio this morning as police are on the hunt for 48 exotic animals that escaped from the Mushkingum County Animal Farm, a wildlife preserve. The owner of the preserve was found dead, and the animals' cages were left open. Lions, tigers, bears, zebras, giraffes, cheetahs, and camels were among the animals that were found roaming free. Police have shot around 30 of the animals. The town remains on lock down, and residents have been advised to stay indoors. Danielle White, a resident of Zanesville, lives on the property next to the animal preserve, and reports on what she's witnessed.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg was bitten by a ground hog during a ceremony at the Staten Island Zoo Monday morning.
Bloomberg spoke to the media about the incident later that day, suggesting that Chuck very well could be a 'terrorist rodent' agent.
The city's prognosticating rodent, Charles G. Hogg, also known as Staten Island Chuck, bit through Bloomberg's glove when the mayor was trying to coax the animal into view with an ear of corn.
