The San Diego Zoo Safari Park said two dogs were loose on zoo property and one managed to get inside the enclosure.

It’s unclear exactly how this happened, but the gorillas seemed agitated by the intrusion as they chased after the dog, as seen in video captured by people in the park.

Park specialists were eventually able to recall the gorillas from the habitat so that the dog, now named “Mighty Joe Young”, could be rescued.

No animals or people were injured. Both dogs are now in the care of the San Diego Humane Society.
