An entire west German town was on lock down after lions, tigers, a bear and a jaguar broke out of a local zoo Friday (June 1).
The Eifel Zoo in Lünebach, Germany, was heavily flooded after a storm that also damaged fences, allowing the animals to leave their enclosures, authorities said.
Early reports from the regional broadcaster SWR suggested that lions and pumas had escaped, but officers later confirmed that the big cats were lions, tigers, and a jaguar. Zookeepers said the five big cats had all been fed the day before their escape.
According to the German broadcaster, heavy rain meant the water level increased and nearly the "entire zoo was flooded". It is home to some 400 animals, including around 60 exotic and native animals, according to Eifel Zoo's site.
