Spring Hill, Florida (WTSP) -- Deputies and wildlife officers searched for a very big kitty that got away Friday.

Deputies and officials from Florida Fish and Wildlife were called after a lion was believed to have escaped from the Survival Outreach Sanctuary in Spring Hill.

Wildlife trapper Vernon Yates tells WTSP 10 News the female lion apparently dug out of her enclosure. The lion was still on the sanctuary property and the public was not in any danger.
