Exotic animals to be returned to widow in US case

Exotic animals to be returned to widow in US case

Officials say five exotic animals will be returned to a U.S. woman whose husband released dozens of wild creatures last fall before he committed suicide.
The Ohio Agriculture Department announced the decision Monday. It's unclear when the animals would be released to Marian Thompson.
Thompson's husband released dozens of exotic animals from their farm Oct. 18 before killing himself.
Authorities were forced to shoot 48 creatures. Three leopards, two primates and a bear survived and were placed with the Columbus zoo. One leopard later had to be euthanized.
