Residents were warned to stay indoors after two lions and two tigers escaped from Eifel zoo in Luenebach
A bear was reported to have been shot.
Police killed a bear after the breakout, but the big cats remained on the loose until authorities using a drone managed to corral them on the zoo's premises in the town of Lünebach, according to The Local.
Animal escapes from zoos are rare but not entirely unheard of.
The escape came two years after another similar case in eastern Germany, when two lions broke out of their cages at the Leipzig zoo, the AFP reported.
Police told the Associated Press that all of the escaped animals are still believed to be on the grounds of the zoo, but locals have been warned to stay inside as a precaution.
The Eifel Zoo in Luenebach is located in the west of Rhineland-Palatinate, about 50 kilometres north of Trier.
