Tuttle, Oklahoma, had to worry about tornadoes and tigers this week.

According to Newsweek, the city’s interactive zoo, Tiger Safari, was hit by a tornado Wednesday night. The damage from the storm led to the escape of several exotic animals, tigers included.

The local sheriff’s department advised residents to stay indoors until all the animals were accounted for and safely returned to the zoo. After several hours of work, authorities announced they had found all of the escapees and that Tiger Safari was reporting a full house of healthy animals once again.
