This is scary!!
Visitors and employees at the Indianapolis Zoo in Indiana were locked down on Sunday morning for more than an hour after a cheetah escaped its holding area.
Apparently, the animal got out of its pen while moving between enclosures, though after more than an hour searching and confirming safety for guests, the lockdown was lifted.
The cheetah was tranquilized in order for officials to give it medical attention, as well as place it back in a proper enclosure. Close call!
Visitors to the zoo posted on social media about their experience at the animal park during the lockdown:
