These were the apocalyptic scenes in Tblisi today where lions, bears, wolves and a hippo were among dozens of animals on the loose following heavy flooding – which church leaders say is a punishment from God for melting down the monastery’s bells.
The capital of Georgia has been placed on lock-down after the flooding destroyed enclosures at the city’s zoo – allowing a host of dangerous and scared animals to escape and roam the streets.
The head of the Georgian Orthodox Church blamed the floods on the ‘sin’ of Communists who he said built the zoo using money raised from destroying churches and melting down their bells.
