Taronga zoo releases video of lions escaping from their Sydney enclosure

Taronga zoo has released video showing how five lions escaped their enclosure by scratching at and then breaking through the fence.

The five lions – four cubs and an adult male – can be seen clawing at the fence before squeezing underneath it and proceeding to wander around outside their Sydney exhibit.

The escape in early November sparked a lockdown of the zoo with a “code one” alert issued. Staff and visitors sought shelter until the lions were returned to their enclosure.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing with the zoo stating an “independent, specialist forensic engineer” was conducting a detailed examination into the fence’s failure and the “complex mesh fencing system”.

Lioness 'Maya' was a good girl and stayed in the enclosure!
