Lions, tigers, and bears? No, really

Schools close as lions, tigers, bears on the prowl in Ohio – CNN.com http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/19/us/ohio-animals-on-loose/?hpt=us_c1

(CNN) –Flashing signs on the highways in eastern Ohio warned motorists Wednesday: Exotic animals on the loose. Call 911. Schools shuttered and some frightened residents said they were hunkering down in their homes as sheriff’s deputies hunted lions, tigers, leopards and grizzly bears that escaped from a preserve after the death of the owner. Police have not yet said how Terry Thompson died, but Zanesville Mayor Howard Zwelling told CNN Wednesday that Thompson freed the animals from their pens and then shot himself.
