Swiss police say an elephant that escaped from a circus and wandered through Zurich's banking and commercial district has been recaptured.
City police spokesman Michael Wirz says officers chased the elephant through the city for an hour until a keeper was able to control the animal and bring it to safety.
He says nobody was hurt and there were no reports of damage following Sunday's escapade.
Niklaus Leuenberger, a spokesman for the Knie circus, tells The Associated Press that Sabu the elephant got loose as she was about to be loaded onto a trailer.
He says her stroll through the city included a brief dip in Lake Zurich.
