WDSU in New Orleans reports that the Audubon Zoo is closed Saturday after an adult male jaguar reportedly escaped from its habitat and killed six animals.

No explanation has been given for the jaguar's escape, but the zoo said an "after-action review" is taking place, as well as an investigation into how the jaguar escaped. "This is by far the biggest tragedy we've had".

The New Orleans zoo is now closed until 10 a.m. Sunday. A vet team captured and sedated the animal an hour later after it had mauled four alpacas, one emu and a fox.

The killings appeared to stem from territorial disputes, according to CBS News.

The house is where the animals are cleaned and fed, then boarded overnight. Unfortunately, it was doing what jaguars do'.




There were no human injures.

The zoo is to remain closed for the day due to the unsafe situation from Saturday morning.

Ron Forman, the zoo's president and chief executive officer, said Saturday's series of attacks was the worst in the zoo's history but told the public the Audubon Zoo was still safe. "The animal care team is devastated by this tragic loss", Audubon Zoo Communications Specialist Frank Donze said. One additional alpaca and two foxes were also injured in the incident, but survived and are being cared for by veterinarians, according to WDSU-TV.

"He's a young male jaguar", Hamilton said". He is incredibly smart and loves learning new training behaviors.

"The safety of our guests and our staff and our animals are our No. 1 priority", Burks said.
