A daring Orangutan is back in its enclosure Wednesday morning, after a short escape through a Wichita, Kansas zoo.

The escape led to a brief lockdown.

The animal, named Tao, slipped through unwoven mesh, and made it all the way to a guest path.

Two visitors first thought the orangutan was a statue, until it moved.

They notified zoo officials who were able to coax Tao back into the enclosure.

The exhibit is now closed until further notice.
