60 year-old Marian Thompson has been working as a 6 grade teacher at Maysville Local School District in Muskingum County for 30 years, she got married to her husband Terry on 1977 the  same year he started purchasing exotic animals. On 1996 Marian received an unexpected birthday gift from her bus band a lion cub, they named Simba.

“There was a baby lion there that was not very healthy, and my husband purchased it for me for my birthday,” she said. “Once you have an exotic animal, you’re somewhat tagged as someone who will take unwanted or abandoned animals. And that’s how it grew. We went to an exotic animal auction and Terry bought me this baby cub as a present. That was the beginning,”

After that they passion, love and devotion towards wild, exotic animals expanded to the point that they owned 56 animals. They never sold any of them, Marian said the reason they have them was because they care and love them.

“We don’t want to sell our animals,” she said. “We don’t want them on display. We don’t choose to do that.” something similar said her husband once “What I don’t have them for is for profit, I do not have these animals for money. I’ve never sold an exotic animal and have no intention of doing it.”

Marian Thompson and her husband separated not long ago, by the time he was released from jail three weeks ago after serving a one year sentence from having guns at his house, she was not living at the 70 acre farm.

Mrs. Thompson’ husband freed the animals on Tuesday just before he killed himself, police notified neighbors about the exotic animals on the loose, also asked then to call 911 in case they saw one, sadly 49 of the whole lot were shot to kill, the rest three leopards, one grizzly bear and two monkeys have been taken to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium.

Marian arrived at her former home on Wednesday, she begged in tears  to officials not to kill the animals, she receive Jack Hanna with open arms and begged him to have mercy for the remaining animals that she described as her babies.

Hanna rushed to the scene when he heard about the animals, even more when he heard about the Bengal tigers a species that is an endangered . Although he understand the reasons police had to shot the animals he was so sad  about  them all mostly about the tigers.

“When I heard 18, I was still in disbelief,” Hanna says. “The most magnificent creature in the entire world, the tiger is.”

Marian Thompson has been working closely with authorities and Jack Hanna during the whole investigation a friend close to Mr. Thompson said he finds very bizarre that he would freed the animals on purpose, he loved those animals letting them loose was like killing them already.

  1. I am very upset that officials chose to KILL these animals knowing that some were so endangered. Why couldn’t they have tranquilized them all?? So inhumane… and the selfish SOB that did this is lucky he is dead.

  2. They couldn’t use tranquilizers because if they were to do that they would be putting human life in danger, if there were one or two animals it would have been easier. When you tranquilize a large cat it takes 20 mins for the cat to go down and they you have to track the animal, as well as make sure the dart actually released the medication, this was an impossible thing to do in the dark. Imagine someone shooting something at you, how would you react, you would be upset and charge. They did try and when the tiger was hit with the dart it went after the vet immediately.

  3. THE LOSS OF THESE ENDANGERED AND LOVED ANIMALS IS FELT ALL OVER THE WORLD .THE SORROW OF TERRY’S WIFE AND RELATIVES AND FRIENDS CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD AS WELL UNLESS YOU ARE A LOVER OF WILD ANIMALS AND RARE AND UNIQUE SPECIES. THESE PEOPLE HAD PERSONEL PROBLEMS LIKE THE REST OF US BUT SPENT LOTS AND LOTS OF THEIR OWN MONEY AND TIME TO CARE FOR THE ANIMALS. THE DECISION OF TERRY TO LET THE ANIMALS GO WAS IRRATIONAL IN A LOT OF WAYS EXCEPT IF HE HAD NO MONEY TO FEEDTHEM OR TIME TO TAKE CARE OF THEM. THIS IS THE PROBLEM THAT BESETS MANY OWNERS OF UNIQUE ANIMALS, LIKE MY SELF .I CAN NOT FEED ALL MY PERUVIAN PASO HORSES NOW AND I WORK 70 HOURS A WEEK TO MAKE ENOUGH MONEY . NO ONE IS BUYING ANYTHING OR LOOKING FOR THE LITTLE KNOWN RANCHES THAT HAVE DIRE STRAIGHTS WITH FEED PRICES ZOOMING THIS YEAR. HELP ALWAYS COMES TOO LATE TO SAVE EVERYTHING. HOPE FOR THE BEST IN THE FUTURE.

  4. Is the FBI investigating the Muskingum County Sheriff for slaughtering the endangered animals?
    Where are the videos from the security cameras in the barn?
    It is reported that several witnesses heard the deputies saying they were shooting the animals so they could be mounted on their walls.
    The killing of Bengal Tigers is illegal. Considering these animals were tame pets, it is unbelievable they were
    threatening anyone. It was pouring down rain for several days. The ‘cats’ would have tried to stay dry.
    The FBI needs to investigate the witnesses who heard the deputies claim the ‘trophies’ as they laughed and slaughtered the animials.

  5. Of course not But now I wish everyone of those basterd sherrifs get killed in the line of duty
