ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Townspeople cowered indoors Wednesday as deputies with high-powered rifles hunted down and killed lions, bears and dozens of other exotic beasts that escaped from a wild-animal preserve after the owner threw their cages open and committed suicide.

The preserve in Zanesville had lions, tigers, cheetahs, wolves, giraffes, camels and bears. Lutz called the animals "mature, very big, aggressive" but said a caretaker told authorities they had been fed on Monday.

Police gave the order to shoot the animals dead amid fears tranquilising would be too dangerous

Broken HeartCrying I was heartbroken and horrified when I heard this on the news yesterday. It's a shame that authorities concluded there was no option other than to kill most of the escaped animals, and that animal experts support that decision. Sad

"If the wolf is to survive, the wolf haters must be outnumbered. They must be outshouted, outfinanced, and out voted. Their narrow and biased attitude must be outweighed by an attitude based on an understanding of natural processes."
