SAN ANTONIO — Danielle Dupont with Wildlife Revealed has found her missing black raven, Hoogin, after he went missing this weekend. 

The raven is part of an educational show for Wildlife Revealed. They were doing a show at the San Antonio Zoo for the newly opened Dragon Forest.

KENS 5 reached out to Dupont who said on Saturday that Hoogin became startled right before the show began because he's not used to the San Antonio area. Although his owners allow him to fly freely, he wasn't able to find his way back after he took off, as he is from Bastrop.

Dupont told us this little guy is spoiled! He normally sleeps in a large mew at home and is a "good boy." He can even say several phrases such as "hello, what, you're a good boy, want some water and come on."

He went missing on Friday, having been last spotted at La Tuna Icehouse & Grill. He reportedly showed up to the restaurant and literally asked an employee for some water. 

On Sunday, Dupont told KENS 5 Hoogin was found just across the street, at Southtown Flats apartments.
