ZANESVILLE, Ohio — Officers armed with assault rifles patrolled Zanesville Wednesday morning, a day after police killed dozens of animals that
escaped from a wild-animal preserve, and where the owner’s body later was found.
Warning that more animals still were on the loose, officials expected up to four school districts to cancel classes as the remaining bears, big cats
and other beasts from the Muskingum County Animal Farm were hunted down.
The preserve had lions, tigers, cheetahs, wolves, giraffes, camels and bears. Police said bears and wolves were among the escaped animals that were
killed and there were multiple sightings of exotic animals along a nearby highway.
Sad news for the owner and the animals. I hope no more people get injured or worse but in a way I don't want more animals killed.
Who knows, a few more cryptid big cat sightings in the future maybe.
