The Houston Zoo says it is still trying to recapture two mongooses that escaped from their holding area Monday.

A keeper noticed six of the fuzzy creatures were roaming outside their holding area and alerted other staff members. Four have been returned to their holding area at the McGovern Children's Zoo but they're still trying to capture the other two.

Zoo officials say none of the animals were ever in any public area of the Zoo.
