Taylor Swift escapes her enclosure at Sacramento Zoo

Taylor Swift somehow managed to get out of her enclosure at Sacramento Zoo Sunday and led officials on a brief pursuit.

Visitors were escorted away and Swift was soon recaptured.

Vincent says staff used baffle boards and tables to gently guide the antelope to an off-exhibit holding area less than 15 minutes after it went missing. The zoo veterinarian found the animal had a few scrapes, but was otherwise healthy.

Vincent says the calf was named after the singer because she was "very swiftly on her feet after birth."

More from the Sacramento Bee.

The calf is an eastern bongo, an antelope species native to mountain forests in Kenya that is critically endangered by hunting as illegal logging reduces its habitat, according to the zoo. Only an estimated 200 eastern bongos still survive in the wild, officials say.

The Sacramento Zoo said it has participated for more than 20 years in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Eastern Bongo Species Survival Plan, which coordinates management of the species.
