Cleveland Zoo: Escaped Leopard Found

Posted by: EMAIL l FACEBOOK l TWITTER

Cleveland, OH (WOIO) -  The Cleveland Zoo is breathing a sign of relief after it caught up with an escaped cat.

A Clouded Leopard escaped from a rain forest exhibit Friday afternoon.

They knew it was missing right away and after a zoo worker spotted it, it took officials about 15 minutes to tranquilize it.

Thankfully it didn't do any harm.

The leopard is currently resting comfortably in an off-exhibit holding area.
