OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The eye of the tiger was set on freedom at the Oklahoma City Zoo.
Lola, the four-year old Sumatran tiger, somehow managed to escape from her enclosure on Thursday. The zoo issued a “code red” and put the place on lock down while the crouching tiger managed to sneak her way into another area of the cat exhibit, where a clouded leopard was housed.
A cat fight nearly ensued between the two, but fortunately, a piece of wire mesh averted the cat-on-cat crime. Lola was eventually contained and tranqualized (not killed) and officials say no one at the zoo was hurt.
