Lions, Tigers, & Bears, oh my (on loose Ohio)

http://www.rr.com/news/topic/article/rr/9000/53780033/Sheriff_Exotic_animal_farm_owner_killed_self
Thankfully all animals but 3 have been taken care of since mid morning today. But sad thing is, a lot of them were killed instead of being tranqualized & taken to a zoo or someplace.
Still on the prowl is a monkey, grizzly bear, & a mountain lion.
Sad for them animals that they're going to have to get killed, but it may be almost useless since the mountains of W. VA. is near by, if that's the route the animals took off for.

OR they could have taken off for PA.......watch out MJ.

Re: Lions, Tigers, & Bears, oh my (on loose Ohio)

key words in the article "all night hunt" and "population 25,000"

never understood why private citizens would want to own exotic wild carnivors in the 1st place :roll:

if the private owner had any sense, he would've called zoos to arrange pick-ups before killing himself.

I know of one place near here that would've gladly adopted all the wolves:

Sheriff's deputies shot nearly 50 wild animals – including 18 rare Bengal tigers and 17 lions – in a big-game hunt across the state's countryside Wednesday after the owner of an exotic-animal park threw their cages open and committed suicide in what may have been one last act of spite against his neighbors and police.

Three leopards, a grizzly bear and two monkeys – were captured and taken to the Columbus Zoo. A wolf was later found dead, leaving a monkey as the only animal still on the loose.
