PEORIA -- Animals from the zoo took an unexpected field trip. Four boys managed to take two turtles from their tank and a rabbit from its pen.

When zookeepers noticed the animals were missing, they found the boys with the rabbit in a backpack. The kids had already set the turtles free.

Zookeepers were able to round up all the animals. They're all safe and sound.
