Up next, to make me sit shaking my head. The man who was allowed to have a menagerie of exotic animals in a residential area. He let them all loose: lions and tigers and bears. He then killed himself. Perfect. Can you imagine driving in your car and seeing a lion pass by? That's how the police were called in. Motorists saw the animals. The police were brought in and were ordered to shoot to kill. I can't imagine what the officers were feeling. Fifty wild animals roaming an Ohio neighborhood. All shot dead. All of them. Not their fault. The animals are innocent in all this. They didn't ask to live out of their natural habitat. They certainly meant no harm. They are meant to be wild. They are meant to hunt for food. They are not meant to be living with some nut case in a neighborhood. They are not meant to be shot down dead for doing what they do naturally. I understand that the vast amount of animals versus the safety of the community made it impossible to use finesse, but the animals are innocent in all of this. Even Jack Hanna, from the Columbus Zoo, supported the shoot to kill order, but was horrified at the sight of all the dead animals. Private ownership of exotic animals should not be allowed. The only exception I can think of is Siegfried and Roy and you heard how that turned out. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided. The man should never have had the animals in the first place. Heartbreaking.
Sidebars: Lindsey Lohan needs to go away. She needs to go to jail. She is making the whole judicial and probation system in Los Angeles a mockery. Why is she getting such incredibly special treatment? She once was special, now she's just tragic. Time to treat her as if she was just a poor person in the system. She is not a movie star anymore and may never be at this rate. Stop putting her on the cover of magazines, newspapers, and top stories. It's ugly, pathetic, and very disconcerting.
