Zoo animals escape German zoo, some are captured in the afternoon

German police are advising residents in the western town of Lünebach to stay inside their homes after two lions, two tigers, a jaguar and a bear broke out of their cages in a local zoo.

The cats were all located within a few hours on the grounds of the zoo in Luenebach, located near the border with Luxembourg and Belgium, police spokesman Joerg Raskopp said.

It is unclear what circumstances lead to the bear's death.

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.

It is reported that a river overflowed and wore down fences, allowing the risky animals a way out.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday said India was ready for talks with Pakistan if it stopped aiding terrorism. There are apprehensions that the Chabahar project could also suffer delay in the wake of the U.S. sanctions.

Earlier this month a holidaymaker called out a government-run zoo in the Philippines, saying that they found a blind lioness "clearly suffering" in a cage that "was not clean enough".

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

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.

Two years ago two lions broke out of their cages in a zoo in Leipzig, one was safely captured whilst the other was shot dead.
