Hog deer captured after escape from zoo in India


Published in Weird News

(UPI) Officials at a zoo in India said a hog deer escaped from its enclosure and vaulted over a perimeter wall before being found roaming on a nearly vacant plot of land.

The Thiruvananthapuram Zoo in Kerala said the hog deer escaped from the facility Thursday and was later found wandering on a vacant property near the zoo.

The deer was tranquilized and taken to a facility to be observed overnight before being returned to the enclosure Friday.


The escape comes after a spotted deer escaped from the zoo and was captured when it wandered into a residential area in Kanaka Nagar.

Zoo officials said work is underway to increase the height of the facility's perimeter wall to prevent future escapes.
