People are urged to call police if they see the five predators, local media reports.

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.

A bear, which also broke out of the Eifel Zoo in Lunebach on Friday, was shot dead.

A spokesman for the district of Bitburg-Pruem, in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, said earlier in the day that two lions, two tigers and a jaguar were on the loose.

It is reported that a river overflowed and wore down fences, allowing the unsafe animals a way out. At the zoo, which is located on a riverbank, the water was knee-high.

According to the zoo's website, it is owned by the Wallpott family and has three permanent employees.

The bear escaped from the 30-hectare (75-acre) zoo grounds into the rolling hills of the Eifel region and had to be shot, Mr Raskopp said.
