Warning as lions, tigers and jaguar loose at German zoo

Five dangerous predators including two lions two tigers and a jaguar escaped from a zoo in Lunebach western Germany. A jaguar

German police are advising residents in the western town of Lünebach to stay inside their homes after two lions, two tigers, a jaguar and a bear broke out of their cages in a local zoo.

A bear has been shot just outside of its enclosure, say a spokesman for the zoo.

People in Luenebach, in the west of the country, have been warned to stay inside by police.

A recent storm caused damage in some parts of the region, though it was unclear whether the animals escaped because of damage caused by the storm.

Authorities said that the mass breakout could have been caused after a river overflowed following heavy rainfall causing fences at the zoo to erode.

Owned by the Wallpott family, the Eifel Zoo in the Rhineland-Palatinate near the border with Luxembourg is home to about 400 animals from 60 species, including a Siberian tiger. At the zoo, which is located on a riverbank, the water was knee-high.

In an earlier zoo incident two year ago, two lions broke out of their cages at the Leipzig zoo. One was shot dead and the other recaptured.

The woman said that she felt sorry for the five-year-old lioness, explaining that she looked depressed in her small, three-feet-wide cage.
