   BREAKING Lions tigers and jaguar ESCAPE from zoo

Five risky predators, including two lions, two tigers and a jaguar escaped from a zoo in western Germany on Friday, sparking a massive hunt, a spokesperson for the local authorities told AFP.

The drama peaked midmorning when the bear was discovered - and shot dead.

Local residents near the zoo close to the Luxembourg border were warned to stay indoors while the predators were on the loose.

While emergency services including firefighters and police were deployed to hunt down the predators, inhabitants of the town were told to stay indoors and to keep their windows and doors closed.

According to the zoo's website, it is owned by the Wallpott family and has three permanent employees.

Local media reported that lions and pumas had broken out of the zoo, but police were able to determine that the missing animals were two lions, two tigers and a jaguar.

According to the German broadcaster, heavy rain meant the water level increased and nearly the "entire zoo was flooded". One was captured, the other shot dead.
