Ger­man zoo kills es­caped bear

New Straits Times - - World -

A bear has been killed after it es­caped from its en­clo­sure at a zoo in the north­ern Ger­man town of Osnabrueck. The Ger­man news agency, dpa, re­ported that the bear was shot by zoo per­son­nel and all vis­i­tors were tem­po­rar­ily evac­u­ated on Satur­day. The head of the zoo, An­dreas Buse­mann, said they had to shoot the bear to pro­tect the vis­i­tors. Buse­mann said the bear, called Taps, was one of the zoo’s at­trac­tions, a so-called cap­puc­cino bear — with a po­lar bear and a brown bear as par­ents.
