Exotic Animals Should Not Be Caged
articles on line about how the Sheriffs department was forced to slaughter animals in order to protect the public. According to an article in the Columbus Dispatch, of those animals, 49 were killed. Six animals -- a grizzly bear, three leopards and two monkeys -- were captured alive and taken to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and a monkey and a grey wolf were at large. The animals that were killed included 18 tigers, nine male lions, eight female lions, six black bears, three mountain lions, two grizzly bears, one baboon and two wolves. There was even concern that the escaped monkey poses a danger because it is infected with herpes, As much as I hate it, the animals had to be put down. The public was in too much danger to try to wait and capture these dangerous animals! This is just another example of why people need to stop raising these dangerous animals outside of zoos and professionally controlled habitats.
