Well, to say the least this is one of the biggest headlines in news around America.
I’m not sure who i’m more sad or angry at: is it just always easier to deal with emotional issues when there’s someone around to blame?
in a nusthell: an exotic animal collector who owned a farm in ohio was, from what i have gathered from internet news websites is that he was nearly $70,000 in debt to the IRS and going through a divorce with his wife.
It may very well be easy to try and place blame on one figure/person/group when it comes to any sort of sad loss like this.
He let all of his animals free from his cages, & then committed suicide.
I believe he probably really wanted to do better for these animals. But that’s a hell of a tribe.
