An 800-pound takin briefly escaped its enclosure yesterday morning at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence. Two zoo workers and a veterinarian suffered non-life-threatening injuries when the animal became aggressive during a routine hoof procedure and charged out.  A capture team was able to track and tranquilize the takin named Har-Lee, and get it back inside his enclosure.  A takin is described as part-goat and part- antelope and native to the Himalayan Mountains.
