Wild dogs kill 16 animals after Storm Ciara damages safari gates

She said the wilds dogs were returned to their compound unharmed.

“The wild dogs entered the neighbouring compound through a gated entrance which had been damaged in the storm which hit Worcestershire earlier that morning,” the spokeswoman explained.

She added: “Given their personal attachment to our animals, our staff are extremely saddened by the incident.”

Commenting on the impending arrival of Storm Dennis on Saturday, the spokeswoman said: “We are aware of the current weather warnings in place for this weekend and will monitor this closely, making our decisions, as always, in the best interests of our animals and public safety.”

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), the African wild dog is “one of the world’s most endangered mammals”, with only about 1,400 left in the wild.

The largest populations remain in southern Africa and the southern part of East Africa.

The predator, which gathers in packs, hunts species such as gazelles and can reach speeds of more than 44mph.

Meanwhile, two donkeys out for a “romantic stroll” on Valentine’s Day were rescued by police after they strayed on to a country road.
