It is hard to believe that it has been one year since the tragedy near Zanesville, Ohio when Terry Thompson released more than fifty animals from his private zoo and then took his own life. Lions, bears, primates roamed the streets aimlessly, literally lost, before being shot by authorities, ill-equipped to handle such an insane situation. Since then, Ohio has strengthened its legislation but other states lag woefully behind. Still other exotic animal exhibitors perform with tigers or let patrons swim with them.
