The movie The Wild Beasts (1984) centers on vicious zoo animals that go on a murderous rampage after ingesting PCP-laced cocaine.
In a German zoo, lions, cheetahs, elephants, and other animals accidentally consume cocaine soaked in the drug PCP. This makes the wild beasts go insane and violent, causing them to break out of their cages.
The movie The Wild Beasts (1984) follows the crazed, hyper-aggressive animals as they run rampant through the city, attacking and killing anyone they encounter. The zookeepers and police try capturing the lethal beasts before they can harm more people.
