So lets just kill em all no other plausable solution right...."Sheriff Lutz defended the shooting of the escaped animals. He said when deputies arrived at the house, there were large animals trying to escape. The deputies had to shoot them with their sidearms" Yes of course why not...

"Public safety was my No. 1 concern," Sheriff Lutz said. "I gave the order that if the animals looked like they were going to get out, they were going down." Wow he just saved the entire state of Ohio from catastrophe. Oh he had to shoot all the one's that did get out as well. I mean you had time to encounter the animals and time to call in the appropriate animal control, so what happened to tranqulizers and relocation.?

This could have been solved by allowing private citizens to shoot them as long as they allowed them to eat what they shot.

Anyone want to eat a lion?


I don't think the average PD has the tranquilizer weapons to deal with, what, over 20 dangerous animals?

Real life is NOT like the movies. You shoot a big animal with a tranquilizer dart and they don't simply drop. It was getting dark, if they hadn't put those animals down chances are someone could have gotten killed.

Don't get me wrong, I think it sucks that they were forced to kill so many of them.

they only had to put down 49 of the 50 animals... the monkey they found inside one of the lions...
