Unfortunately, not many people have common sense when it comes to caring for animals. Animals are mistreated, abused, neglected, and kicked to the curb when their human decides they can’t deal with them.

Earlier this week, an owner of over 50 exotic animals let them all loose to fend for themselves and terrorize the local town of Zanesville, Ohio, located fifty miles east of Columbus. Exotic Animal Sign Terry Thompson was the name of the man who owned all of these exotic animals and kept them on his 73 acre farm.

The local authorities were in a panic to protect the residents and shot and killed the majority of the animals.  The dead included 18 rare Bengal tigers, six black bears, a baboon, a wolf, 3 mountain lions, 17 lions, and two grizzly bears.  Six of the exotic pets were captured and have been taken to the Columbus Zoo.

The Sheriff and his deputies are getting threatened and abused by people for the decision to kill these animals. I’m an animal lover and I at first I felt the same – but then you have to look at it Lion Animal Tattoofrom their view point.  Every resident was in jeopardy and time was critical. It sucks but they put human life before considering that the animals were just doing what animals do. No one was hurt except for the animals. Fortunately, Thompson shot himself after releasing his pets so he got what he deserved.  It might have been more appropriate if one of his animals had taken him down – but life’s not perfect.

So, a Zanesville tattoo artist felt he wanted to do something positive in the wake of such a tragic week in his town. Billy White, from Downtown Tattoo, donated money he made doing tattoos of exotic animals during the days that followed the tragedy.  He raised over $1000 and is going to donate it to the care of the animals that survived.  Another tattoo artist going over and above for a good cause.
