PRAGUE (AP) — Prague zoo says one of its fearless honey badgers is on the run.

Zoo spokeswoman Jana Ptacinska Jiratova says the female honey badger named Kaca escaped last week, when she probably climbed over a 1.6-meter (5.25-foot) high fence.

Pavel Brandl, in charge of mammals at the Prague zoo, says the honey badger is considered the most fearless animal in the world.

He fears that the small, furry carnivore that loves honey is unlikely to survive in the wild.

Jiratova says the zoo has received a number of tips from Prague citizens about Kaca's possible whereabouts, but so far the search has been fruitless.

Prague zoo is one of the few in the world where six honey badgers were born in captivity. The 10-year-old Kaca, who joined her partner Cert in Prague nine years ago, is the mother to all of them.
