An escaped jaguar went on an hour-long killing spree in a zoo mauling to death six animals.

While on the loose, the jaguar managed to attack and kill six other animals - four alpacas, a fox and an emu. No people were hurt in the incident.

Zoo vet Frank Burks later told media that Valerio would not be killed.

The zoo announced it would be closed for the rest of the day Saturday and will reopen to the public Sunday at 10 a.m.

We are taking this incident very seriously and working to investigate what happened to prevent a similar occurrence in the future. "We care for these animals every day", says Kyle Burks, a top official at the zoo, per CNN.
