It hasn’t been a good day for Ohio.
The sheriff who issued a shoot-to-kill order after dozens of exotic animals — including Bengal tigers, mountain lions and bears — escaped from an Ohio farm defended his decision Wednesday, saying “we were not going to have animals running loose.”
Sheriff Matt Lutz said the owner of Muskingum County Animal Farm near Zanesville appeared to have set the animals free and then taken his own life.

“CAUTION EXOTIC ANIMALS” should be the title of the inevitable David Fincher movie that comes out of this. All movies based on real-life events shall be directed by David Fincher, according to this blog.
