48 exotic animals killed by local police

| No Comments

An Ohio man released 56 exotic animals he owned, forcing a local sheriff to kill 48 of them earlier this week, says the Associated Press.

According to the AP 62-year-old Terry Thompson admitted he was having a tough time caring for the animals days before unleashing them and killing himself.

USA Today reports that the man behind the order to shoot and kill, Sheriff Matt Lutz, has come under nationwide criticism, but says, "If I had to do it over, I'd do the exact same thing."
