Lions and Tigers shot in Ohio

In Zanesville, Ohio, 50 wild animals were shot. 18 tigers and 17 lions were just some of them. The owner let the animals loose and then commited suicide moments afterward. The inhabitants of Zanesville hid in there houses until all the animals were killed. Terry Thompson, owner of the Muskingum County Animal Farm , is to blame. Police armed with guns went out to shoot these animals. So far, 48 animals are dead, 3 leopards, a grizzly bear, and 2 monkeys were sent to Columbus Zoo, a monkey still on the loose, and 6 black bears, 2 grizzlies, a wolf, a baboon, and 3 mountain lions were found dead and were buried at the Animal Farm. So remember, don't go hurting animals unless it is needed.
