    Ohio To Build Supermax For Wild Animals

    This is the single most retarded state I have ever lived in as regards wild animals in the hands of private parties.

    Many of you may recall that in October of last year, a central Ohio man let loose dozens of wild animals, most of them predators, before committing suicide. They were euthanized by the local police, but not before a panic set in. There have been other incidents in which a wild animal has maimed or killed an owner and even a neighbor or visitor to the property.

    So we finally managed to pass a law, requiring citizens who have such animals to register them, and by next year, to get a permit for them. That permit will ensure that whatever animals are in private hands here are secure and held in a humane setting, with adequate care and food.

    No one with any sense thinks 90% of the animals will be eligible for permitting, as the conditions in which they live are not secure and not humane. So Ohio's response is to build a $3.5 million "super-max" for those animals that overflow the capacity of zoos and other sanctuaries.

    That won't be the total cost, of course -- these animals will need food, care, keepers, etc. It's empire-building on steroids, in a state where a good many urban public schools are in disrepair.

    WTH they couldn't just euthanize an animal that can't be placed is totally beyond me -- and I'm just disgusted by this turn of events.

    They aren't allowed to euthanize an endangered species, I expect.

    Really? Even if the animal is sick?
