After a terrifying day, Zanesville, Ohio, will attempt to regain a sense of normalcy.
All of the escaped exotic animals from Terry Thompson’s farm have been accounted for, authorities confirmed at a Thursday morning press conference, and the active search has ended.
Out of 56 animals, 49 were killed and buried on the property. Three leopards, a grizzly bear and two monkeys were captured alive and have been relocated to the Columbus Zoo.
One monkey, which had previously been unaccounted for, is believed to have been eaten by a lion or tiger.
Thompson, 62, released the animals Tuesday night before killing himself. He appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Preliminary autopsy findings show that he also sustained a bite wound to his head from a big cat seconds after he shot himself.
