Mary the antelope is back at Lupa Zoo in Ludlow after a one-month adventure in the real world, the zoo reports. The one-horned African antelope escaped in April following a storm that took down the fence lining her and her mate’s enclosure.
Since then, the zoo, police, animal control, and others have been searching for the wayward antelope. This weekend, a determined zoo staff member caught her.
Wally Lupa, a director of facility development and animal care at the Lupa Zoo, said in a release that he was able to lure her into a trailer near the Mass. Pike on Saturday and return her home. He spotted her by the solar panels close to Chapin and Miller Streets.
