Repairs are being made to the antelope exhibit at the Baton Rouge Zoo after one of the animals escaped.
A spokesperson for the zoo says the antelope was startled and hurtled out of the exhibit around 10:30 this morning. A portion of the railing was damaged in the escape.
Zoo officials are praising the employees for being able to quickly and safely respond to the situation, containing the animal and returning it to its enclosure.
