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.

The animals escaped from the Eifel Zoo in the municipality of Luenebach.
