Numerous police, zookeepers, and firefighters are combing the zoo looking for the animals before they wandered into the town.

Residents in the nearby are are being warned to stay indoors.

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

Five unsafe predators, including two lions, two tigers and a jaguar escaped from a zoo in Lunebach, western Germany.

Exact details of how the animals managed to escape or exactly when they got out were not clear. Part of a local motorway had also been blocked off due to high waters.

Owned by the Wallpott family, the Eifel Zoo in the Rhineland-Palatinate near the border with Luxembourg is home to about 400 animals from 60 species, including a Siberian tiger.

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