DAEJEON, Sept. 18 (Yonhap) -- A puma was caught Tuesday hours after escaping from an enclosure at a South Korean zoo.

Zookeepers at Daejeon O-World in the city some 160 kilometers south of Seoul discovered earlier in the day that the eight-year-old female puma had disappeared.

They immediately reported the situation to authorities.

She was found at around 7 p.m., and a tranquilizer dart was used to capture her, they added.
