Roger Williams Park Zoo

A routine hoof procedure turned out to be not so routine when a takin named Har-Lee managed to escape his enclosure around 9:05 Tuesday morning. 

Roger Williams Park Zoo said the recapture team was immediately activated with tranquilizers and backup rifle, never losing sight of Har-Lee following him to a point where they could safely sedate him.

The issue was resolved at 9:55 a.m. and the zoo opened for regular business 20 minutes later.
