“There are still thought to be numerous dangerous beasts on the loose, many of them vicious predators, creating a public safety threat.” Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz stated and added that sheriff deputies are on the hunt armed with shotguns, were patrolling areas in pickup trucks early Wednesday morning. These are wild animals, wild animals that you would see on TV in Africa, the American man said.
In nearby Licking County, Sheriff Randy Thorp said he has activated the county SWAT team “who will be equipped with night vision and the necessary weapons to deal with any encounters with such animals.”On Tuesday, commuters reported spotting bears and wolves along I-70.
Nature strikes back ! Ohio animals from farm on the loose
The menagerie of about 48 wild beasts on the loose also includes non-predators like giraffes and camels, which still can be very dangerous for humans.
The hunting went so far well for deputies. They shot dead about two dozen of them Tuesday. No reports came which animals were shot or recaptured.
Schools out ! Lions and tigers roam freely in Ohio
Schools in at least four districts in Ohio were declared closed for Wednesday, as authorities asked residents to stay inside until the rest of the wil beasts were rounded up or killed, before they prey on humans.
The animals escaped from the Muskingum County Animal Farm in Zanesville on Tuesday following the farm’s owner, Terry Thompson’s undisclosed death. Authorities did not elaborate how Terry Thompson died.
