The issue of traffic jams in Israel has long been discussed as millions of cars make their way through the busy highways of Israel every day.
On Sunday however, a different reason caused drivers to slow down on the highway near Ramat Gan - a flamingo.


A flamingo named Shulman slipped out of the zoo in Ramat Gan, probably due to the strong winds and the stormy weather that hit Israel on Sunday, as Shulman found himself walking in the middle of the highway.
Zoo caretakers managed to stop Shulman 15 minutes after having escaped, and brought him back to the zoo.
Shulman was declared to be strong and healthy by the veterinarians who made sure no harm came to him on his adventure.
The Ramat Gan zoo is home to 15 flamingos who happily welcomed Shulman back.
