  • A massive hunt is under way for the five beasts

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

Two tigers, two lions, a jaguar and a bear escaped their enclosures at a German zoo Friday morning, leading authorities there to put residents of the city on alert in case any of the animals left the park.

Thunderstorms had sparked flash floods in the area overnight and completely flooded the private zoo, which is located on a riverbank. Police say they are responding the situation but now have no further details.

Officers in nearby Trier said all of the escaped animals were believed to still be on the grounds of the zoo in the town of Luenebach, near the border with Luxembourg and Belgium.

Feud between Pusha-T and Drake escalates with latest track
Pusha T sidelines the drug dealer talk and multi-millions talk and resorts to unveiling strictly facts on the new diss track . But he maintained the image wasn't doctored, and was from an actual Drake photo shoot done by photographer David Leyes .

It was not clear how the animals escaped nor exactly when they got out. Part of a local motorway had also been blocked off due to high waters. One was shot dead and the other was forced back into its cage, according to the BBC.

This June 28, 2016 image show the lions Malor (behind) and the mother Lira in their enclosure in the Eifel Zoo, western Germany.

In 2015, an orang-utan was shot dead while on the run from the Duisburg zoo, and a bear escapee from Osnabrueck suffered the same fate in 2017.
