    I read about this and was saddened that the police just started shooting them instead of trying to contain the situation until animal control could come to tranquilize them. But, I wasn't there and it is hard to tell the whole picture the police were looking at.

    It also does not tell how the owner died. Even if he had been mauled by one of the animals ALL of the animals would not have been out. Some one has to have gone through and opened all of the cages don't you think?? Even if some one objected to this guy having all of these animals setting them free would be an invitation to them all getting killed rather than re homed.....

    Curious what comes of this. [​IMG]

    It really pushes my buttons that they went in there & shot everything.

    I heard about this on the radio this AM on my way to work. I went to Zanesville, OH for Longarm quilting classes a couple of years ago. Really pretty countryside and rolling hills where I was.

    I'm sure it was a pretty scary time for folks who live in the area. I wouldn't want to be the officer in charge who had to make that call to put the animals down [​IMG]

    Ok thank you - this is not too far from me - and i was getting upset with people that wer eglad that they were being shot. It is not their fault they were in this and running loose. And they are just being animals - WILD animals. I agree if the animal is highly dangerous or aggressive - BUT to just shoot on sight? I was glad to see Jack Hanna show up and was also upset- but sadly it looks most have been killed - Breaks my heart

    What I'd heard at some point was they tried to tranquize some of the animals, but it was causing more aggression or some other problems, so they weren't able to use that. I'm not sure how much of that was accurate.

    But as much as I'm sorry the animals had to lose their lives because of a cruel and heartless owner, I will not fault the officers who had to do the killing because the owner was that sick and evil to release the animals before taking his own life. I can't see there being a good answer in this situation.

    Let's place the blame on the owner, where it firmly and totally belongs.

    It's another sad case of the animals paying for an irresponsible owner. [​IMG]

    Man....that's just sad.

    I wish that owner were still alive...we could all throttle the heck out of him. I agree with the police's decision in this. Which would you rather have?

    Death of several people nearby that had no idea this was happening? Or the death of a single animal?

    It's sad any way that you look at it..
