Only 1411 left... how many now

after this

The massacre began Tuesday evening when sheriff deputies arrived at a notorious wild animal preserve in Zanesville, Ohio, to see Bengal tigers, lions, bears and other ferocious animals wandering away, some headed for the highway.
Fearing the animals would scatter and terrorize the town, officers began dispatching the wildlife with their pistols.
"These animals were on the move and were showing aggressive behavior," said Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz.
"There were some very close calls," the sheriff said. At times it was "almost hand to hand" combat with the animals, Lutz said.
"These are 300 pound Bengal tigers that we had to put down," he said.
During the night of chaos, an escaped lion killed a monkey, and bears and lions were charging at horses kept at the preserve, he said.
When the carnage was over, 49 animals were slaughtered, including 18 Bengal tigers, 17 lions, six black bears, a pair of grizzlies, three mountain lions, two wolves and a baboon.

Well hope they at least cooked the meat and used the skins for rugs and all. Else, what a waste

Re: Only 1411 left... how many now

What exactly am i missing here?

1. Why were the animal headed towards highways anyway?
2. Why werent any tranquilizers used before resorting to bullets? (even in Canada we get guns for self protection but with mild tranquilizers)

Its heartbreaking see those many exotic animals killed.

Edit: Ha! so its a preserve and not a zoo. Sorry, my mind isnt working. Its like saying lets go to neighbors backyard and kill our neighbors rabbit. Still the question remains as to why they have to resort to bullets.

they tried tranquilizers on some and they became more aggressive so they had to shoot them.

The psycho killed himself after releasing the animals and many of them mowled his body and would ve tasted the blood ..authorities suspect.

All this took place in the evening hours, and it was getting dark. Officers didn't want to risk the lives of citizens by allowing animals to flee. Tranquilizers are only effective for minutes, and even after getting shot, animals are conscious and strong enough to move around for a few seconds before they drop. Imagine darting one and finding it, when you know there are about ~50 lions, tigers, bears, wolves, etc. running around you.

As Jack Hanna said, it was all very tragic and unfortunate, but the Sheriff didn't have much time to think. He decided that it's a safer bet to kill wild animals before they kill humans.

Re: Only 1411 left... how many now

It is one thing if this dude was living out in a remote place with species native to the place. But only about 50 miles from C-bus and with mostly lions and tigers held captive! The state of Ohio must have some real lax laws about keeping exotic animals. What a tragic waste!

Yahoo report noted that Ohio has one of the weakest laws and regulations in this regard. People can pretty much buy any wild/exotic animals they want.
