The enclosure that a jaguar escaped from over the weekend to kill nine animals at Audubon Zoo was compliant with federal regulations, Audubon officials said.

Dr. Kyle Burks, managing director of the zoo, gave a detailed update Tuesday on the investigation into the jaguar’s escape. Officials also noted that the USDA had inspected the jaguar habitat and “found the exhibit compliant to regulations.”
