  • Lions and tigers break out of zoo cages in western Germany

Police near the city of Luenebach, in the country's west, believed two lions, two tigers and a jaguar had escaped their enclosures at a zoo that had been flooded. Local residents were advised to stay in their homes and to call the police if they saw the animals.

The animals were able to escape after flooding from an overnight storm that caused a river to burst its banks damaged their enclosures.

The bear was shot dead by zookeepers after going missing from its enclosure.

It is reported that a river overflowed and wore down fences, allowing the risky animals a way out.

A massive search was then launched involving police, firefighters and veterinarians.

Local newspaper Trier Volksfreund said the cats were still within the sprawling 30-hectare grounds of the zoo when they were finally located by a drone.

Hours later, police confirmed that those animals had, in fact, never left their cages.

One of the lions was shot dead and the other was eventually brought back into captivity.

Kruppert said the zoo was checking whether the animals could remain in their enclosures.

Most were found on the grounds of the zoo and returned to their cages.
