Eighth animal dies after jaguar escapes Audubon Zoo habitat

Jaguar escapes New Orleans zoo enclosure, killing 4 alpacas, an emu and a fox

A tragedy at a zoo in New Orleans, Louisiana took place on Saturday morning after a jaguar escaped from its enclosure.

Unfortunately, four alpaca, an emu and a fox were attacked and killed by the jaguar.

Officials have said the jaguar will not be euthanized in the wake of the incident.

"Nothing's going to happen to the jaguar itself".

Also kept in this area are the alpacas, giant anteaters, spider monkeys, bats, tropical frogs, monkeys and tarantulas.

In their statement, officials added that due to the tragic loss it has been a hard day for the staff at the Audubon Zoo and that is why they will remain closed for the rest of Saturday. An investigation is underway and we will release information when available.

"From our initial inspection, it appears the roof of the habitat was compromised".

As of early this morning, our fox, Rusty fared well overnight, he will continue to be monitored and treated by expert animal care professionals. Noel, Micia, Alexandria and Lil Melody died Saturday.

"The team responded immediately to the incident".

"Veterinarians had to prepare tranquilizers and position themselves to get a good line of sight".

That, or he's back in his enclosure, plotting his next escape.

A jaguar has killed eight animals after it escaped its zoo enclosure and went on a almost hour-long killing spree.
