Thunderstorms had sparked flash floods in the area overnight and completely flooded the private zoo, which is located on a riverbank.

Five risky predators, including two lions, two tigers and a jaguar escaped from a zoo in western Germany, sparking a massive hunt.

Then a local broadcaster (mistakenly) reported that some of the big cats might have slipped from the 74-acre compound of the Eifel Zoo in Lünebach, near the border with Luxembourg and Belgium.

The animals included two lions, two tigers, a bear and a jaguar, according to several news reports.

A bear has been shot just outside of its enclosure, say a spokesman for the zoo.

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

"That enabled multiple animals to escape". Part of a local motorway had also been blocked off due to high waters.

One of the lions was shot dead while the other was eventually brought back into captivity.
