Ok so the Sheriff's office seems incapable of noticing they have a potential serial killer involved, and animal control is 4 deputies with AK-47s in a pick up truck. Brilliant.

My bad. I was referencing a story, About the same animals, but from another site.

In the summer of 2010, an animal caretaker was killed by a bear at a property in Cleveland. The caretaker had opened the bear's cage at exotic-animal keeper Sam Mazzola's property for a routine feeding.


Though animal-rights activists had wanted Mazzola charged with reckless homicide, the caretaker's death was ruled a workplace accident. The bear was later destroyed.


This summer, Mazzola was found dead on a water bed, wearing a mask and with his arms and legs restrained, at his home in Columbia Township, about 15 miles southwest of Cleveland.

The reason they killed them was because it's apparently very dangerous to tranquilise an animal at night - they react differently, run off and hide, something to that effect. It was risky for the cops involved.

I'd rather have a dead tiger than a dead person... but it really is saddening.

It's not just risky to tranq large animals at night, but during the day too. Tranquilizers don't work on the big animals like the movies show. One of these big cats could rip your face off, and I mean that literally, with a single swipe. They are dangerous animals and it is an unfortunate measure that had to be taken.

Which is why "exotic pets" shouldn't be had in the first place. Leave the animals in their rightful place and we'll be fine.

Threat to the public, they gunned down this bengal that was on the loose around here in Socal. The owner had insufficient cages and the big Bengal broke out, was on the lamb for a week. ****ing thing ended up near a school and a park where the kids play. Even with that location, there was a giant uproar over the shoot to kill order by the Sheriff and the city paid for a plaque at this park in honor of the lion. :rofl:

People just don't realize a couple kids could have been lunch.

Like 24Champ said threat to the public.

This was a rural neighborhood and tranquilizers aren't something you just have pre-made for something like this.

By the time you figured out what all animals you was dealing with and dosages needed and all that stuff you could of had loss of life.

It's a shame but this was about all they could do. The owner not only opened the cage doors but damaged the cages so you couldn't use them to rehouse the animals if caught.


But if in the time you tried to get a capture team rounded up and tranqs prepped some family lost a child to one of these animals the state would have a whole different problem then , so killing them was all they could do.

it is very sad. those are impressive animals and don't get me started on the cops who get their rocks off killing things (if you don't believe me, google about the epidemic of cops shooting people's pets, but that's another rant), but the reality is that these are apex predators and nobody there was equipped to trap or tranquilize all of these animals on short notice. this was a public safety issue and they had to find and shoot these animals quickly because somebody's kid, or pet, or livestock was going to end up getting eaten in the near future if they didn't. the guy who offed himself and set these animals loose was a POS for doing that. he's really the one who signed their death warrants.

SouthStndJunkie
10-20-2011, 01:45 AM
I agree....I'm pissed that these animals had to be shot and killed like they were.

However, that's not exactly a scenario you can prepare for and at night, they almost had no other choice. Their job is to protect the public and that was probably the most effective way to ensure that.

I don't like it one bit, but I understand what had to be done. It's that **** bag that kept them that was culpable for their deaths.

That said, I don't doubt those good old boys in Zanesville minded riding around in trucks blasting exotic animals with high powered rifles all night.

On a side note, black bears have been making a nice comeback in Ohio the last several years.

I think there were 164 sightings of black bears in Ohio in 2010....up from 119 sightings in 2009.

Most of the black bears in Ohio are on the eastern border counties, where black bears have been expanding their boundaries from Pennsylvania and West Virginia into Ohio.

Muskingum County, where this fiasco occurred, had one black bear sighting in 2010.

Imagine the public outcry if anyone were to be injured or killed by an escaped lion/tiger/bear/ohmy while trying to humanely round up and capture said escapees.

On a separate note, I loled at the news that a monkey with herpes remains on the loose. Reminds me of something....

Just seen on the news here locally that they also tried to tranq the first of the tigers they encountered. Either do to not having time to prep dosage or the shear power of the animal it didn't even phase the animal and turned to attack the woman who shot the dart and they had to put it down.

Problem is it can take several min. to take affect. In the meantime an agitated animal can and will charge you. And you have to get real close to use these guns. They interviewed on lady who tried to tranq one of the cats but the animal charged here almost immediately afterwords. They had to put it down before it reached her.

A sad factoid about this. According to CNN there's only around 1,400 Bengals tigers in the world. They shot 18 yesterday.

I blame the state of Ohio and other states allowing individuals to own such animals in the first place.

There is a massive Python problem in South Florida now and it will only get worse.

There are also indivduals allowed to own poisonous snakes. Like cobras etc. There is a place down here where some of the most poisonous snakes in thw world (not native to America) like Australisn brown snakes, or inland taipans, black mambas, bagoon vipers etc etc. If any of them get loose and some how reproduce, they will never be able to get them out.
