Something really awful happened shortly after Saturday’s brevet.
A man who owned a wildlife preservation in Zanesville with a variety of exotic animals including tigers, lions, monkeys, cheetahs and a bear let the animals loose on Tuesday. Sadly the owner killed himself afterwards. Even more depressing is that the police officers were forced to kill a large majority of the exotic animals to prevent any accidental attacks or deaths of the local residents. Many of the 911 calls of where the animals were located happened to be on the roads we were riding on.
Kind of freaky, really. Considering we got our ass kicked being chased by a wild dog, I can’t imagine being chased by a wild tiger.
