In Ohio, the owner of a large amount of exotic and endangered species was found dead while the cages to -some- (not all) of his animals were opened where these animals escaped the property and are roaming wild. Pretty crazy story.
From what i've gathered from other sources, the guy released some of his animals and then killed himself. But, for some reason, did not release ALL of his animals which included chimps, apes, etc.
Conspiracy theorists will say PETA is behind this, as earlier in the year supposedly a man in Ohio who owned bears was being sued/harassed by PETA, only to be found several months later tied/bound to a bed, masked, and murdered. That's not my opinion, just throwing it out there for the sake of conversation.
Law Officers have already shot and killed over 20 of these animals, most of which are instinct to begin with which makes me feel a tad uneasy. I understand they're concerned about the saftey of their citizens but shooting to kill a semi-tamed endangered species doesn't seem right. On the other hand, how often do you get to go on an African safari hunting trip in little ol' midwest USA?
Someone should call Bob Parsons to come in and get the job done, haha.
