Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! Is what folks are saying in a small city in Ohio where lions, wolves, bears, giraffes and other exotic animals are trying to make their way back to Madgascar. Not really, but doesn’t it sound like a scene from that movie?
According to MSNBC, the animals were somehow released from a private animalreserve, Muskingum County Animal Farm in Zanesville, Oh., where the owner, Terry Thompson, was found dead and believed to have released the animals before committing suicide. So far, 25 of the animals have been killed by authorities and the report stated that up to 48 more may have retreated to the woods.
