Dallas, Texas (KWTX)- The Dallas Police Department is helping the Dallas Zoo search for a leopard that has escaped its habitat.
“Now the zoo continues the situation with the “blue code” – this is a non-dangerous animal that is out of its habitat,” the zoo said on Facebook.
“One of our clouded leopards was not in its habitat when the team arrived this morning and its whereabouts are currently missing.”
The zoo will remain closed while police and crews search for the animal.
“Given the nature of these animals, we believe that the animal is still in the territory and hiding … We are now focused on finding the animal,” the zoo said.
This is an evolving story. There is no additional information.
