Lions and tigers shot in Ohio; owner freed them

Lions and tigers shot in Ohio; owner freed them

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

Senh: That crazy guy appeared on the Rachel Ray show as an animal handler. I don't think the sign "Caution Exotic Animals" is effective. It doesn't sound dangerous. Now, if the sign had included the words "lions" and/or "tigers," it would get the point across. The police members shooting the animals all sound very sympathetic towards them. It really is too bad that all those endangered tigers are shot - all 18 of them, especially when there are only thousands of them left in the world. I think they made the right decision to shoot them before night falls. There should be laws in place banning the ownership of wild animals because they are a danger to society.
