Hard to see? Does this make you mad? Then DO SOMETHING to help prevent it from happening again! YOU CAN STOP things like this.
Six years ago, 56 exotic animals were turned loose by the owner of a private menagerie located near a highway and a school in Zanesville, Ohio.
Whether law enforcement was right or wrong to kill 49 of those animals is not the debate today. It doesn't change the fact that root cause is those animals should never have been privately owned in someone's backyard to begin with. Killed: 18 tigers, 9 male lions, 8 female lions, 6 black bears, 3 mountain lions,2 grizzly bears, 1 baboon and 2 wolves. An escaped monkey was likely eaten by a big cat. Only six animals (a grizzly bear, three leopards and two monkeys) were captured alive and taken to a zoo.
This tragedy – for the animals, the law enforcement officers, and the community – was preventable and will occur again unless private exotic animal ownership and breeding is banned across the country.
