Giraffe escapes from Indiana children's zoo

VIDEO: Young giraffe escapes the zoo

Fort Wayne Children's Zoo employees are working to capture a giraffe that escaped from the zoo exhibit.

Workers at a United States zoo needed a couple hours to get an escaped giraffe back into its enclosure.

She did not reach any public areas and zoo patrons were not affected, Dove said. It took zoo staff about two hours to get the giraffe back into its enclosure. The zoo's youngest escaped from the enclosure after she repeatedly tried to run through the cables of the exhibit causing them to eventually snap.

As many of you may know, our youngest giraffe Thabisa made a decision to have a little adventure today! Thanks for all of your concern, but after realizing our nonpublic parking lot near the giraffe barn wasn't that exciting, she chose to go back into the barn all on her own.

The zoo says she is now resting behind the scenes.

Thabisa, 5 months, this morning was headed down the chute from the giraffe barn to the African Journey to join other giraffes for the first time when she found an opening and escaped into a fenced-in area where staff park, said zoo spokeswoman Bonnie Kemp.

The zoo just opened to the public for the season on Saturday.

The incident happened sometime after the zoo opened at 9 a.m.
