One zoo-goer captured incredible footage of a tiger who got stuck in the fence at the Oklahoma City Zoo.

Devin Dobson posted the following video to Twitter on on Thursday of a female Sumatran tiger who had gotten stuck in the fence at the Oklahoma City Zoo.


Shortly after the video was posted, the zoo issued a code red after the tiger escaped its enclosure. Many visitors had to take safe shelter at different buildings throughout the zoo, according to the Associated Press.


A zoo spokesperson said that the tiger escaped its enclosure but was contained by another fence and tranquilized, and that visitors were in no immediate danger. Zoo officials do not know how the tiger escaped its enclosure.
