‘Olivia’ the cheetah managed to get out of her cage Friday afternoon at the San Antonio Zoo. The facility was shut down and all visitors were put into buildings until the cheetah was tranquilized.

The cheetah climbed a portion of the fence that’s about ten feet high, climbed into a tree, and then jumped to the ground outside the enclosure.

The cheetah never left zoo property. She was out of her cage for about twenty minutes.

Zoo visitors were kept inside buildings until Olivia could be tranquilized. She's now recovering inside a holding cell.

“We were very, very fortunate,” said Campos.

The cheetah exhibit will stay empty until zoo officials can make changes to the cage.
