    Time for one helluva BBQ in Ohio. Don't compound the tragedy by wasting all of that good meat. I'd be happy to share my recipes. :-)

    Obviously, this is very sad. But I do not think we are able to determine, based on a news report, whether the actions of law enforcement were necessary or appropriate. If I had been there with dozens of predators on the loose in populated areas, I'd likely made the same decision. It also seems evident that the owner was a troubled individual who needed intervention and help, in any event.

    Sig1911,
    Said it best.We were not there, and have no right to Judge the Officers. I would of probably done same thing.

  6. My wife is a rabid peta member and questions why tranquilizers went used. I just want to know what ammo they were using. That's good info for hunters!

  7. I live about 4 to 5 miles from that farm. A bear ran through my yard. First thing I did was grab my shotgun and called the cops to come Down my way . They shot him in my field next too my tree line. It flelt like Africa in our town for a couple days

    It is truly amazing that nobody was killed by the predators. The sheriff explained that he had to ensure the safety of the public and he only had about 1 to 1 1/2 hours until darkness set in, so he made the decision to kill the animals, a good decision I believe. These were large predators, very aggresive, no fear of humans, very dangerous when on the loose roaming in the dark. The tranquilizers were ineffective. One example- a tiger was tranquilized and after a few seconds turned and charged the vet that shot it and so it was put down by deputies with assault rifles.

    They used full auto on a tiger? That is a once in a lifetime hunting experience. I can appreciate not relying on subjective tranquilizers, I grew up on a farm/vet clinic. Get kicked in the hip by one "sleeping" horse and you wont forget it!

    I have no idea if the assault rifles used were capable of fully automatic operation. The news reports just said that the sheriff's deputies were armed with assault rifles and that the tranquilized tiger was killed with assault rifle/s. There was no mention, that I am aware of, of fully automatic weapons used by police to kill the animals.

  11. What the news media says are assault rifles, and what actually are assault rifles are usually two different things..
