A scarlet ibis from the Edinburgh Zoo enjoyed a week of freedom in August, courtesy of a hungry squirrel. According to the Daily Record, the bird escaped after a squirrel chewed through a net covering over its enclosure, and stayed out of reach of keepers by perching in high, isolated areas. After nearly a week, keepers lured the bird back into captivity with its favorite foods. The ibis will be kept in isolation for a few days to ensure it is healthy, then it will be returned to its newly repaired enclosure.
