Big cats break out of German zoo

Big cats break out of German zoo

German police are cautioning residents in the western town of Luenebach to stay inside their homes after an undetermined number of lions and pumas broke out of a local zoo.

The drama peaked midmorning when the bear was discovered - and shot dead.

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

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.

German media report the animals were able to break out after flooding from a storm overnight.

The Eifel Zoo in Luenebach is located in the west of Rhineland-Palatinate, about 50 kilometres north of Trier.

It was not clear how the animals escaped nor exactly when they got out. The five big cats were found within the confines of the park and were recaptured in the afternoon.

One woman tweeted: "An innocent animal shot because the zoo clearly couldn't keep the animals safely in captivity".

In 2015, an orang-utan was shot dead after escaping from the Duisburg zoo, and a bear escapee from Osnabrueck suffered the same fate in 2017.
