Two rescued bears and two lions were among the more than 50 animals released by the owner of an animal preserve in Ohio.
In October 2011, 62-year-old Terry Thompson opened the cages at his animal preserve outside of Columbus and then killed himself.
Deputies killed 48 animals, which included 18 rare bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears.
The state of Ohio has been trying to find a home for the surviving animals ever since a new law took effect last month. The law set severe restrictions for keeping wild animals.
