    A bunch of exotic animals were released by their owner in Ohio, who later committed suicide. Local law enforcement officers were forced to put down the animals before any members of the public were harmed.

    The interview with the deputy who killed the black bear starts around 1:10.

    Damn, that's a shame.
    I guess those agencies didn't have any tranquilizers.

    It's a black bear. Tiny bears don't count. We reserve tavors for kodiaks :)

    They did. It made the Bengal tiger more angry.

    I think it is a shame that the animals were shot. However, they were wild animals and I suppose it was their best option. I just dont think any person should be allowed to cage and own animals. Its cruel to make them live their life out in a cage. That is one reason I dont enjoy going to a zoo or circus.

    Pfft, dogs ain't in it to die that way.

    And, yeah, if you're doing stuff where there is a decent chance of a bear attacking you, the correct answer is "sleep with a 10mm."

    That's so weird, usually the little blackies are pretty cautious and don't attack humans unless they are starving or you mess with their babies.
    To get attacked twice when you aren't a Fish and Game officer is kind of nuts.
    I'd hope that if he starts running with a 10mm he won't be like the G.I. who drew down on my friend and I when we came out of the woods onto the trail one day.
    I understood he was hiking with his family but grizzles in that area would have made him eat that .38 special.

    .38 Special is b[ear]ly enough for humans.

    That's really odd. In my experience, bears want nothing to do with dogs and it is not mutual. Molly is as docile as it gets; but she really, really wants a piece of bear (dumbass). I've tackled her to prevent her from chasing one.

    Is that Molly in your avatar? If so, perhaps she is trying to mate with the bears given her large size and fur.

    Dogs aren't real bright when it comes to avoiding danger. I had to drag two of mine away from a large water moccasin. I'm convinced that if it had only been one dog the snake would've struck.

    I imagine you sitting at the breakfast table in your bathrobe, scanning through several local newspapers and hoping for bear-related news.

    I could see our Miniature Dachshund doing something that stupid/brave.
