A French zoo has been temporarily shut down by local authorities after a pack of nine wolves escaped from their enclosure during visiting hours.
No people were injured during incident last weekend at Trois Vallées zoo in Montredon-Labessonnie, southern France.
The animals destroyed safety hatches and climbed a fence, but never went outside the zoo.
Four were shot dead for “dangerous behaviour”, local official Fabien Chollet told AFP news agency.
