CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) – A kinkajou that disappeared from its cage at an animal sanctuary north of Claremore has been found, but five mallards are still missing.

Officials say they found damage at Wild Heart Ranch Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Tuesday morning, and five ducks and a kinkajou named Kiki were missing. According to sanctuary co-owner Annette King Tucker, the back gate was open, the patio area was trashed and there was blood where the ducks had been kept.

The kinkajou, which is a mammal that lives in the tropical forests of Central and South America, was found when Tucker’s husband heard Kiki running across the patio Tuesday night.

The ducks are still missing. They were weeks from being ready for release into the wild.

The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office said that it will review the surveillance footage from the facility.
