An elk has been captured after turning up in a Warsaw park, state news agency PAP has reported. The animal was spotted by city patrol officers in the capital’s Skaryszewski Park on Thursday morning.

They dubbed the elk “rose eater” after it devoured almost all the roses in the park’s rose garden. The patrol called a wildlife officer, who decided to administer sleeping drugs in order to transport the elk out of the city. According the news agency, the animal ran into a lake after being given the drugs and had to be fished out.

A woman who had been on the run for the last 10 years has been located and arrested in Gdańsk this week. The woman who was being sought under three separate arrest warrants was finally caught hiding out in an apartment in Gdańsk.

The police have not revealed why she was wanted, but she is thought to have been involved in a series of company extortion crimes involving large amounts of money. The 63 year old woman avoided capture by moving frequently and didn’t update her ID or apply for a new one.

A tip-off to the authorities this week ended her fugitive life and when the police arrived to arrest her, she didn’t resist capture. She is now facing up to 4 years in prison.
