Four wallabies at the Blank Park Zoo escaped from their holding area Sunday night after a gate was left open.

Search crews returned three of the four animals to their enclosure within two hours of the discovery of their escape.

One wallaby remained on the loose throughout the overnight, but was located Monday morning and back in his enclosure by 7:30.

Zoo officials say all four of the wallabies never got beyond the zoo’s perimeters.
