Staten Island Zoo officials are asking residents to be on the lookout for an escaped red fox.

The little critter apparently burrowed out of its enclosure a few days ago, and it might be on the loose in the surrounding neighborhood.

The fox is about seven months old, weighs about ten pounds, and is the size of a house cat.

Zoo officials say the fox is not likely a threat to people or small animals, but if you do see it, stay away and call the zoo at 718-442-3101.
