America’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift, shares her name with a 1-year-old Eastern bongo living at the Sacramento Zoo.
The bongo, which is a type of antelope, was able to escape her enclosure. While the whole incident only lasted 15 minutes thanks to the Sacramento Zoo staff’s quick action, it gained national attention. The zoo is active in trying to preserve the endangered species through conservation efforts, so any attention to the bongo’s plight has to be appreciated!
Taylor Swift herself posted about it on her Instagram. When Taylor Swift posts about you, you know you’ve made it. We hope the ill-executed escape attempt was worth it for the bongo!
