A giraffe runs loose on the streets after escaping from its enclosure at a circus on September 21, 2012 in Italy.

THIS is the hilarious moment an escaped giraffe gave police the runaround. People frantically fled its path as the runaway charged around the picturesque town centre of Imola, Italy. It broke loose from Rinaldo Orfeo Circus this morning (FRI) - before leading police on a cartoon-like chase. Rush hour traffic was brought to a standstill as locals stood aghast at the bizarre scenes unfolding. And others reported damage to their cars, which crumpled under the the 920kg giraffes hoofs.

Putting its neck out: The giraffe even managed to stoop underneath this mesh fence as it continued its escape bid
