   BREAKING Lions tigers and jaguar ESCAPE from zoo

Three lion cubs were born on April 14, 2018 at the zoo.

An entire German town was placed on lockdown Friday after dozens of animals - including two lions, two tigers and a jaguar - escaped from a zoo because of a storm-related flood, according to reports. Residents of the German town Lunebach were asked to keep all doors and windows closed as local police rounded up the roaming animals.

A bear which had broken free from its enclosure was however shot dead, a spokesman for local authorities said.

It is believed the animals escaped for their cages after flooding from a storm overnight.

The animals escaped from the Eifel Zoo in the municipality of Luenebach.
