Police capture lions, tigers, jaguar after escaping from zoo

Lions tigers jaguar and bear escape from zoo after flooding from storms in Germany

Two lions, two tigers and a jaguar have escaped from a zoo in Germany.

Several animals were freed from their cages by flooding at a western Germany zoo on Friday.

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

Numerous police, zookeepers, and firefighters are combing the zoo looking for the animals before they wandered into the town.

The zoo is home to about 400 animals, many of which are big cats. At the zoo, which is located on a riverbank, the water was knee-high. Among those escaped was a bear that was later traced and shot dead.

In the end, a drone sighted the remaining escapees inside the zoo compound.
