Menagerie Run Amock!

The New York Daily News reports that a Zanesville, OH, man, "Terry Thompson, 61, released the wild animals in his preserve before taking his own life."  Apparently, he had an extensive menagerie of exotic beasts, many of them deadly predators, and decided to free them all before he did himself in.  Local authorities enacted a shoot-to-kill protacol and believe that they have accounted for all of the loose animals.  (There are some reports that one monkey might have been eaten by one of the predators or might still be on the loose, with Hepatitis C.)
