Zoo lioness sneaks out of cage, recaptured

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Oct 23 � Panic prevailed among visitors to the Assam State Zoo here when a lioness managed to sneak out of the cage around 4-45 this afternoon.

The lioness � a two-year-old animal born in captivity � gave a torrid time to the zoo authorities but fortunately it remained inside the zoo campus and was tranquilized before it could come into confrontation with any person.

�The lioness was tranquilized and put into her cage around 6-15. We are looking into how the animal could go out,� the zoo�s Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) Utpal Bora informed.

It may be recalled that on January 30 this year, two tigers had managed to escape from their confinement. This had led to a panicky situation before the tigers were tranquilized.

The incident has raised concerns over safety and security of visitors inside the State Zoo.
