The Associated Press and others have reported that dozens of exotic animals – including Tigers and Bears – have escaped from an exotic animal farm in I-70 in Ohio after the farm’s owner was found dead. The owner’s body was found outside of his home and every cage had been left open.
There have been multiple sightings of the exotic animals along Interstate 70 near Zanesville, Ohio. Staffers from the Columbus Zoo arrived at the farm, hoping to tranquilize and capture the animals.
