Dangerous wild animals captured after breaking out of zoo in west Germany.
Five dangerous predators, including two lions, two tigers and a jaguar which escaped from a zoo in western Germany are “back in their cages” following a massive hunt, local officials have said.
Officials had earlier asked residents to stay indoors and keep their windows and doors shut as a massive hunt got under way for the animals.
A district spokesman would not immediately give details on how the animals escaped or how they were returned to captivity.
A bear, which also broke out of the Eifel Zoo in Luenebach, was shot.
Owned by the Wallpott family, the zoo located close to the border with Luxembourg, is home to around 400 animals including a Siberian tiger and lions.
The escape came two years after another similar case in eastern Germany, when two lions broke out of their cages at the Leipzig zoo.
One of the lions was shot dead while the other was eventually brought back into captivity.
