Zoo corrals cheetah on the run, investigation underway
The Indianapolis Zoo was on lockdown Sunday morning after a cheetah named Pounce escaped from its exhibit, the Indianapolis Star reported.
The cheetah left its enclosure and a Code Red was issued at the zoo, meaning all guests had to remain inside.
A zoo spokeswoman said it is unclear how the cheetah was able to escape the exhibit.
Officials used a tranquilizer dart to subdue the cheetah. After being darted, the cheetah ran back to its exhibit.
An investigation to determine how the cheetah escaped is underway.
