Escaped Lions, Tigers And Jaguar Recaptured By German Zoo

A bear was shot dead.

Two tigers, two lions and a jaguar which escaped from a privately-owned zoo in Germany have been recaptured.

The five predators were found inside the zoo compound by a drone, local media said. Residents in the western city of Lunebach had been advised to stay inside their homes and notify police if they spotted any of the animals on the prowl.

A bear also escaped the Eifel Zoo but was shot dead, a source told AFP.

Daily Bild reported the animals escaped on Friday after flooding caused by storms eroded fences, allowing them to break free.
