DALLAS – Dallas police are helping to search for a missing leopard at the Dallas Zoo.
Zoo officials said the facility will remain closed Friday because of the “serious situation.”
“We have an ongoing situation at the Zoo right now with a Code Blue – that is a non-dangerous animal that is out of its habitat. One of our clouded leopards was not in its habitat when the team arrived this morning and is unaccounted for at this time,” the Dallas Zoo said on Twitter.
