Adverb question

ライオンを早く動物園に戻して! :running_man: :running_woman: :lion:

This sentence is from something that I’m reading.

Is 早く an adverb here? If so, shouldn’t it be に早く戻して

Or is it an i adjective, in which case shouldn’t it be 早い動物園

I don’t doubt the sentence is correct , just looking to increase my understanding as I struggle with adverbs

It’s an い adjective in adverb form, it modifies the verb here. It’s position in the sentence doesn’t matter that much. 早く戻して - return quickly!
Return the lion to the zoo quickly! Etc.
