    Sometimes theres justice, sometimes there is just the giraffe

    Drunk students learn lesson from peeved giraffe
    1.3-ton animal attacks three Lithuanians after they climb into his cage

    VILNIUS, Lithuania - Climbing into a giraffe's cage at the local zoo seemed a good idea after a few drinks. But the prank went wrong when the 1.3-ton animal flew into a rage and attacked the three student trespassers at a zoo in Lithuania on Monday night.

    Ruta Greiciute, a 22-year-old student at Kaunas Technology University, was hospitalized with a broken collar bone and nose after the 9-year-old male giraffe, named Solut, attacked her.

    The other students survived the incident unscathed.

    "This was a very silly thing they did. The scared giraffe could have stomped her to death," Kaunas Zoo spokeswoman Angele Grebliauskaite said.


    The zoo reported that many animals had been disturbed Monday night as students celebrated a festival in a nearby condominium.

    Police have launched an investigation to find out how the intoxicated students entered the zoo at night and climbed the 10 foot high fence surrounding the giraffe cage.

    Giraffe's look kind of spindly, but then so do redwoods till you get close.
