ROUGH CUT – NO REPORTER NARRATION

Tigers, lions, bears and wolves were among more than 30 animals that escaped from a Georgian zoo and onto the streets of the capital Tbilisi on Sunday during floods that killed at least 12 people.

Residents were advised to stay indoors until the animals could be captured. Reuters photographs showed a marksman shooting tranquilliser darts at a hippopotamus walking past shops on a mud-soaked street.

Local news agencies later reported more than half the animals had been returned to the zoo. Some were killed by police, including a rare breed of white lion cub and six wolves roaming the grounds of a nearby children’s hospital.

On Monday morning rescuers recovered a crocodile completely buried in mud. They’ve tied his jaws with a rope before starting cleaning mud off him.
