A hippopotamus that escaped from a flooded zoo in Georgia's capital was recaptured on Sunday.
It was one of several animals that went on the run after heavy flooding destroyed their enclosures.
The zoo said the hippo was cornered in one of the city's main squares and subdued with a tranquiliser gun.
Some other animals also were seized, but it remained unclear how many remained on the loose.
