Thompson freed dozens of exotic animals -- from Bengal tigers to grizzly bears to baboons -- setting off a frightening scenario outside Zanesville, a town of 25,000 in central Ohio. Authorities killed at least 49 animals, including 18 rare tigers.

As opposed to the common tiger, which is so ubiquitous in certain parts of the world that it is considered a pest.

Christ, what an asshole.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

This guy owned over 50 exotic animals. Clearly he was a productive citizen, and only released these animals because the free market demanded it.

Edit: You know what gets my goat? There are absolutely no laws against ownership. There are federal laws against sale, but states often ignore these. Apparently there are private auctions of large cats every year in Ohio.
