Myburgh extended his gratitude to all those involved in the safe and successful recapture of Logan.

Absolute Exotics SA launched a search for Logan upon his escape.

A search party was set up, including officers from the South African Police Services K9 unit, to help track the animal down.

Absolute Exotics said Logan is not dangerous and was unlikely to threaten the public unless provoked.
