OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – It was an interesting morning for zookeepers at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden.
On Monday, officials with the zoo confirmed to KFOR that a red fox named Zinc escaped from his habitat just after 10 a.m.
Authorities say Zinc is not dangerous but zookeepers did what they could to corral him in order to get him back in his habitat.
Shortly after 12:30 p.m., he was contained.
Zinc is an 8-year-old red fox who came to the zoo in 2017 from Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Missouri.
He will remain off habitat while staff investigate the incident and take necessary measures to ensure it will not happen again.
