Exotic Animal Escape in Ohio

I felt that I needed to post this story out of Ohio. It’s one of the more bizarre news items that you’ll see across the wires and sad on a number of levels.

Over 50 exotic animals, including many that are large and potentially dangerous, were released from the Muskingum County Animal Farm by their owner before he turned a gun on himself. Police officials and Columbus Zoo personnel quickly descended on the area to corral the animals.
