Zoo Wars~UPDATE!~State of Ohio seeks to Appeal Court Decision to Return Animals to Stump Hill

I saw this one coming-the writing was on the wall…Since when did the ODA ever obey any judge-Surprise was that they didn’t go ahead and move those animals before any court decision.

Look at all the wasted TAXPAYER money with the new exotic animal regulations!!! Bills from the Columbus zoo, vet, and transport-plus swat teams -Got that swat team to steal animals from their longstanding rightful owners based on an ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUIONAL LAW!

The state wants to send the animals out of state before any hearing or trial which too is ILLEGAL an UNCONSTITUTIONAL!

There is already a case concerning the theft of exotic animals and shipping them out of state-Leo the Lion died in this process as the animals are being stressed and not receiving proper care in a building with no light, fresh air and lacking proper exercise for the animals.*

Governor Kasich is a poor representative of the state and the Republican Party which does not support civil forfeiture and Agenda 21/2030. John Kasich does and so does his buddy Jack Hanna. Sure Jack Hanna supported this law as the Columbus Zoo will bill the state for services they will and have provided for the state -Less than satisfactory I might add-Obviously Jack Hanna has been a fraud for years -The Tiger Ridge animals suffered for more than two months from the care they received-No one saw the pictures of the animals following their stay with the ODA-That was all kept hush-hush so maybe the public wouldn’t find out just how little they know and care for these animals-You better believe Hanna didn’t want you to find out nor did the Columbus Zoo!!!

Ohio Justices Asked to Overturn Decision Forcing State to Return Seized Exotic Animals

by Alan Johnson

State agriculture officials want the Ohio Supreme Court to remove a case involving seizure of exotic animals from the hands of a Stark County judge.

Attorney General Mike DeWine filed a motion late Tuesday contesting an order by Stark County Common Pleas Judge Frank Forchione that the state must return 10 exotic animals seized last week from Stump Hill Farm in the Massillon area. The state said in Supreme Court the filing that Forchione and his court “patently and unambiguously lack jurisdiction over this matter.”

Forchione delayed the return order for two weeks based on the advice of a state veterinarian who said the animals could be endangered by being anesthetized again so soon for a return trip.

Canton attorney John Juergensen, representing animal owner Cynthia Huntsman, said the seizure of 10 animals was “completely unnecessary” because Huntsman was trying to work out an arrangement with the state. She has an Aug. 22 administrative hearing.

The Department of Agriculture seized five tigers, two cougars, two baboons and a chimpanzee from Huntsman because she doesn’t have the necessary permits required under Ohio’s 2012 law banning ownership of unregistered exotic animals. Owners had to have registered animals and meet housing and care requirements by Jan. 1, 2014.

The animals are being kept at the state’s exotic animals containment facility at the Department of Agriculture complex in Reynoldsburg.*

Ohio’s exotic-animal law bans private owners from acquiring, selling and breeding restricted species in Ohio. The restricted list includes lions, tigers, bears, elephants, certain monkeys, rhinos, alligators, crocodiles, anacondas and pythons longer than 12 feet, certain vipers and all venomous snakes.

The impetus for the law came on Oct. 18, 2011, when Terry W. Thompson released his menagerie of exotic creatures on his farm near Zanesville before committing suicide. Forty-eight animals — including lions, tigers and bears — were killed by law-enforcement officers to protect the public.


Not a single person was injured in the Zanesville situation and the FBI never went in to investigate the questionable finding that Terry Thompson killed himself-No reason for him to have done it. No reason to cut locks on cages when the man had the keys to those cages in his pocket! And how is it that he had a gun supposedly sold to him from a Zanesville police office who claims he forgot he sold Terry Thompson that gun. Does anyone really believe the findings of the sheriff-I doubt it; Sheriff Lutz the Putz is not experienced enough to make any conclusion as to what happened when there wasn’t a single witness-I just want to know how Jack Hanna happened to be in the area and get there so quickly!?! -Makes absolutely no sense to me and to others who have studied the Thompson case…

Hasn’t anyone else connect the dots and the connection of Jack Hanna/Terry Thompson/Carole Baskin…???

Carole Baskin’s missing husband, Don Lewis, was declared dead. Their breeding facility became a ‘rescue sanctuary’, Big Cat Rescue; rescuing her own animals for years.

Baskin has said some of the most vile statements have been stated to the general public about exotic animal ownership which are, simply put, LIES!!! Baskin has made it her mission to create bans that would effect private exotic animal owners. Both Jack Hanna and Carole Baskin have worked closely with HSUS, the Humane Society of the United States, Wayne Pacelle, ceo-HSUS.

Carole Baskin has set a pace for Fanatical Animal Rights supporters. Big Cat Rescue has an excess of more than 4 million dollars with little to no money going for animal care leaving the animals living in deplorable conditions which apparently is approved of by FFC and the USDA/APHIS-No other owner would ever be allowed to keep animals in such poor conditions!-NONE COMPARE!!!
