So most of you probably have heard about the lions, tigers, bears and many other wild animals that were released from their cages and are now roaming Central Ohio. Well this is in the county right next to the county in which I live. It's pretty crazy, they've closed schools and businesses. Don't want to get mauled!

Unfortunately they have had to kill many of the animals. I came up with a little something to ease the tension...

New to Central Ohio!! Now featuring BIG GAME hunting!

A suicidal exotic animal owner. He had a sanctuary where he raised and kept wild/exotic animals. Judging by their aggressive nature upon being released he didn't do much to domesticate them, or maybe even take care of them very well. He opened all their cages and then killed himself. Cops shot and killed multiple bears, lions, tigers and other animals in the surrounding area as they found them. Last I saw only a wolf and monkey remained on the lam

Their owner was found dead inside the residence presumed to have died from a SI GSW (self-inflicted gun shot wound). He had just been released from prison and they think he was mentally unstable. They think he let the animals loose and killed himself.

Go to dispatch.com That's Columbus' newspaper. They will have it all over there.

Now animal rights people can chime in.

This was a needless slaughter of many endangered animals. Not for food, but for "public safety"

What a joke of a solution and a sad tragedy.

This was a attack on the community by the owner of the animals

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/19/us/exotic-an...wner/index.html

Had the animals somehow opened their compounds on their own and escaped it would have been a tragedy...in this case it was for public safety with the animals being released as weapons against the community by their demented owner.

I fail to see how these animals were a weapon...even if that was their intended use. They weren't going to break into people's houses and hunt people down.

Close the the town and surrounding areas down for 48 hours, or have the people who do go out be prepared and hunt and tranquilize the animals.

Its not the animals fault that 99% of those in the lower 48 haven't learned to live with animals.

Why don't we just exterminate every last croc in the South, wolf out West, and bear in the North while we are at it? Being they are all potentially dangerous to the public.

I thought of something funny. Imagine if a deer hunter was in a tree stand and looked down to see a lion walking around... hahahaha talk about a double take! I'd be thinking "wow I need to lay off the Jack Daniels"

I saw some of the pics (by accident) of those animals after they were shot. It just breaks my heart. They were totally innocent in this situation. By nature they are hunters and only because of their keeper, were they killed. sad.gif

Only a few states allow people to own these types of animals. This owner kept these animals in squaller (at least that's what the news reported last night). Sounds to me like the law makers need to correct this. There should be laws that actually protect the exotic animals and protect society from being harmed by them.

To the law makers that have overlooked/ignored this: BOOOOOO!!! Hissssss!!!!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

First off its a joke that this guy or any random farm owner is even allowed to keep such animals in his home. They either belong on a designated reserve, a zoo, or at the very least, a licensed landowner who should be subject to inspections. By license, I mean one should have a license to own and care for certain animals. I hope the laws change.

Second, I am not an animal rights activist and am for human safety first. However, I saw the slaughter of all these animals as needless. Either the pollice department was not prepared for such an event (something they probably should have been considering the number of visits they had to make and the number of complaints they received from neighbors) or they didn't want to bother to do it the right way.
