Default Big game hunting in Ohio, anyone?

This exotic animal owner released all his animals then shot himself. The local police spent all night hunting and killing large game. How many of you would have volunteered to help?

Of course! I've been watching it all morning, thinking a tiger pelt would look great on the floor, and I would love a bear skin coat! (I will have one one day, I swear)

I'd have taken the opportunity up. I don't trophy hunt, but it would be a good thing to do ecologically, as they could really screw things up.

Even if you do it for the ecology, they still make a fine trophy.

I think they tried to tranqulize a lion or tiger and it basicly just went crazy, so they put it down. I suppose they just went ahead and did the same for the other, I dont think the local police would have enough tranq guns on hand to get to the ammount of animals in a timly matter for public safty. If one kid was killed due to the fact that they were waiting on a tranq gun it would be horrible.
