Local authorities advised residents to stay inside their homes and call police if they see anything.

Residents of a German town were ordered to remain indoors yesterday after two lions, two tigers and a jaguar broke free of their enclosures in a local zoo.

Police told The Sun that the animals broke out of the Eifel Zoo, located near the borders of Luxembourg and Belgium.

It was not immediately clear how or when exactly the animals escaped, but heavy thunderstorms overnight had resulted in bad flooding across the zoo, which is on a riverbank.

According to Sky News, it's unclear what circumstances lead to the bear's death.
