A giraffe escaped its enclosure and went on a little adventure at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo in Indiana Monday.

The gentle giant, Thabisa, got out of her barn and ran around the zoo's non-public parking lot while employees worked to corral her back to her exhibit.

Thabisa actually decided to wander back into her barn on her own after about two hours of running around.

The zoo said she is now resting safely behind the scenes.

Fort Wayne Children's Zoo said nothing like this has ever happened there, but they are going to re-evaluate the giraffe exhibit to make sure it doesn't happen again!
