Elephant wanders Rome after circus breakout

An elephant broke out of a Rome circus, causing panic and drawing crowds of curious residents as she wandered around a northern suburb before being cornered by police, Italian press reported.

The elephant, named Mia, had almost reached a motorway exit road after two hours on the run on Friday (local time) by the time police caught up with her.

The circus owners recaptured her as she stopped at a roundabout during a moment of indecision, the news agency Ansa said.
