The Ohio Wildlife Massacre


A stuffed animal with a sympathy card attached hangs from the locked gate at the Muskingum County Animal Farm Thursday, Oct. 20, 2011, in Zanesville, Ohio. The owner of a U.S. exotic animal farm who released dozens of tigers, lions and others beasts from their cages in a final act shot himself to death and then was bitten by one of his own animals, a sheriff said Thursday. An autopsy showed Terry Thompson had a bite wound on his head that appeared to have come from a large cat, such as a Bengal tiger, Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz told a news conference.  (AP Photo/Mike Munden)


Some 50 exotic and dangerous animals — including tigers, lions and bears — were let loose from a private farm. This is an absolute abomination and shameful loss of life. May these precious souls rest in peace.
