(CNN)Wild animals roamed the streets of Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, on Sunday, after raging floodwaters damaged the city’s zoo and set many of the animals free.
Eight people were killed by the flooding, several others were missing, and wolves, bears, big cats and even a hippopotamus were wandering the streets of the city,according to Civil.ge, a news agency funded by the EU and the UN.
Lions, tigers, bears and wolves — all on the lam
Of the zoo’s 600 residents, including fish and birds, about half were missing on Sunday, theTbilisi Zoo said.
Some animals have been recaptured, Civil.ge reported. Others have been killed.
But some animals were still on the lam.
Video from the city shows what appears to be a crocodile slithering down the city streets, as well as a hippopotamus standing around looking confused.
