Binturong there, done that
A binturong made a break from Melbourne Zoo last night. It got as far as the Avenue and Walker Road before it was spotted by a passing motorist who reported it to the constabulary. The escapee was rounded up and is now in solitary confinement quarantine. It is still unclear how the binturong got out from its enclosure but keepers are having a close look at the vaulting horse recently provided for exercise.
