So this sick fucker lets all of these poor animals out of cages and then shoots himself. I could really care less that he offed himself... but this pets paid the price.
Police with assault rifles were stalking a mountain lion, grizzly bear and monkey still on the loose on Wednesday after authorities said the creatures' owner apparently freed dozens of wild animals and then killed himself.
Police warned people to stay in their homes, and officials wondered how to dispose of the dead animals after officials hunted down and shot nearly 30 of the 48 of them overnight under orders to shoot to kill.
County Sheriff Matt Lutz told a news conference that it appeared Muskingum County Animal Farm owner Terry Thompson had let the animals loose and died of a self-inflicted wound.
The preserve had Bengal tigers, lions, cheetahs, wolves, giraffes, camels and grizzly bears, among others. The animals' cages had been opened and the farm's fences had been left unsecured, police said.
Lutz called the animals mature, very big, and aggressive. "We're not talking about your normal everyday housecat," he said.
