From Western Austrailia--
A number of circus animals have been recaptured after breaking loose in the middle of Broome.
Cows, camels, llamas, horses and donkeys escaped from their temporary enclosure on Male Oval this morning after a fence post came loose.
It took Circus Royale staff about 10 minutes to round up the animals as onlookers watched in amusement.
Circus Royale spokesman Daman Syred says the animals may have been trying to take advantage of Broome's wet weather.
"We had a cow and a few of our horses decided to go for a run through some of the puddles that have formed here on the grounds in Broome, so yeah they had a bit of a run around on the oval," he said.
