Two lions were among the six animals that escaped their enclosures at a flooded western Germany zoo, before five were recaptured.

A flood-hit German town was locked down for several hours Friday over fears that five risky big cats had escaped a local zoo before they were found hiding in their soggy enclosures.

The caution has come even though the escaped animals are still believed to be on the grounds of the zoo.

A bear, however, was shot dead after flooding triggered by heavy rains swept away the fencing for its enclosure, allowing it to escape.

The animals reportedly broke out after their enclosures were flooded and partially destroyed during storms on Thursday.

A large search operation was carried out, involving the fire services, the police and veterinarians, the spokesman said.


A drone deployed to find the missing beasts - two lions, two tigers and a jaguar - finally located them within their caged areas, said regional authorities.

The animals included two lions, two tigers, a bear and a jaguar, according to several news reports.

Hours later, police confirmed that those animals had, in fact, never left their cages.

The zoo, which has more than 70,000 acres, is privately owned and is home to both native and exotic animals.

A bear escaped the Luenebach zoo's grounds and had to be shot, an official said. While one was returned, the other was shot dead.
