Two lions, two tigers and a jaguar escape from a zoo

I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere but this is actually true and unfolding in Germany as we speak. Unfortunately the animals are likely to end up being shot.

For some reason I have The Great Escape theme in my head now...

  • Far more likely to be shot with tranquilisers than actual bullets surely?

    Most captive animals are less dangerous than their wild counterparts, due to being fed more regularly and interacting with humans already
  • Such a shame as all of the animals are likely to be shot.

    Hope everyone including the animals are ok.
  • A bear that also escaped has been shot. With what isn't clear.

    A rifle ?

    The opening paragraph
    Police killed a bear and were searching for 2 lions, 2 Tigers and a Jaguar.

    So they have already killed a bear

    If it was I'm sure it would have been the biggest rifle the zoo has owned throughout its history.

    Very true. I deal with some expeditions to the arctic circle and part of the advice there is for all groups to have a high-powered rifle and someone trained in its use in case of attack by polar bears. Shoot them buggers with a handgun and you'll just proper rile them!

  • How do all of those Animals escape? it's not like they would have been in the same enclosure.

    I hope they are just bowling about together like a gang.

    No, they've split up. One's on a motorbike, a couple in a plane, one heading for the railway station...
    You foreigners and your plans. There's no need for a plan. If one of the animals is American he'll just turn up on a motorbike and just ride to freedom as if YOU SEE A JAGUAR ON A MOTORBIKE EVERY DAY WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?!?!?!

  • On a serious note, hope the rest of the animals are able to be captured safely.
  • Someone must've let them out

    For some reason I have ‘I like to move it, move it’ in my head. What happened to Gloria and Melvin

    Shouldn't speculate really but whilst I can understand an isolated escape this smacks of animal rights activists or a disgruntled employee (s).

    Hope both visitors to the Zoo and the remaining animals stay safe.
  • Hasn't it been said a storm has caused the escape?

  • Excellent stuff

    Aw good. It's rare that I'm rooting for the capture of animals but this is clearly the best option at the moment.
  • Anyone else getting the adopt a snow leopard ad on this page?

    They're all now back in their enclosures with only a baseball and catcher's mitt.




    I'm really struggling to get away from this Great Escape thing...

    Police have just released a picture showing how they got hold of the bike.

  • Except they didn't escape the zoo did they? They escaped flood damaged enclosures within the zoo and were later returned to their own 'cages'. No word on why the bear was killed tho.
