Cyril, the sea lion
Another escaping incident occurred in London, but this time not in England, but in London, Ontario. In 1958, a sea lion called Cyril pulled off a remarkable escape by swimming away from his enclosure in Storybook Gardens Zoo. He went on a long journey through the Lake Erie, then across the border and ended up in Sandusky, Ohio. After spending some time at the Toledo Zoo, he was sent back to his home in Canada.
