The escape of over 40 exotic animals was a big story in the new yesterday. This horrific image was a result.
How was this man allowed to have these powerful and beautiful, yet dangerous animals? A man who had just gotten out of federal prison on weapons charges and who had previously been in trouble for possessing these animals. Yet nothing was done and Ohio Governor John Kasich had recently let a bill expire that dealt with a ban on buying and selling exotic pets.
This event is an extreme violation of ahimsa and the respect for all life.
What is your reaction and how can this be prevented in the future. Make your voice heard!
