61 year old Terry Thompson was a Vietnam vet with a lifetime habit of collecting exotic animals. Over the years, he built a vast private menagerie at his Zanesville, Ohio home. On October 18, 2011, Thompson proceeded to free dozens of his animals and then killed himself with a gunshot to the head. Shortly thereafter, a neighbor called the police after witnessing a bear and a lion stalking outside. Police arrived to find Thompson’s corpse being gnawed by a white tiger. What followed could only be described as a massacre; officers stormed the grounds with high-powered rifles, hunting the loose beasts. The most dangerous, they would report afterwards, were the tigers, who lay in ambush and charged at them even after being riddled with bullets. Hours later, the hunt was over, and 2 wolves, 2 grizzly bears, 18 tigers, 17 lions, 6 black bears, 3 mountain lions, and 2 monkeys were dead. There were no human casualties excepting Thompson himself. The animals were buried in a mass grave on the property.

A while back I saw a video of an adult, male, African lion videotaped by a bow hunter from his tree stand in Virginia (I think). As a hiker, it scared the crap out of me, it just walked through the woods like it owned the place.

Irresponsible pet owners are the worst.

What exactly was the point of posting that story anyway? Are we supposed to blame the officers and start some kind of childish online war between delusional, overprotective, animal rights people and rational home owners who don't want their children eaten by underfed felines immorally removed from their natural habitats, or was it just generally amusing posting pictures of dead animals? Either way, thanks for the disturbing news blurb. Made the day a bit less boring.

Yeah, I remember this story. They should have used tranquilizers, never mind that, but I think you embellished the information. I never heard anything about the animals charging the officers even after they were "riddled with bullets." How bad were the officers' aims anyway? Were they letting loose with machine guns? Is this a zombie game? Why would you post this? Did you not here about this happening back when it happened?
I don't know if they ever found one of the monkeys.
