No one noticed that one of the zoo’s main attractions had managed to escape. The head zookeeper watched the security videos, but there was nothing to be seen. The general manager was called and asked what should be done.

“Don’t worry about it,” the GM told the zookeeper. “I’m sure we’ll be getting a call about it before the day’s over.”
