A New Orleans zoo was closed over the weekend after a jaguar escaped its habitat and killed eight other animals. A ninth animal died Monday morning.
Audubon Zoo said the 3-year-old male jaguar, named Valerio, was spotted outside his enclosure by a zoo employee around 7 a.m.
Valerio attacked and killed five alpacas, two foxes and one emu. Another fox was also attacked and was improving, but its condition turned critical Sunday night and it died Monday morning.
