Sheriff: Ohio farm owner killed self, was bitten
Sheriff: Coroner says Ohio animal farm owner died of self-inflicted gunshot wound, then bitten
By The Associated Press

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) ' An Ohio sheriff says a coroner has confirmed that the owner of an exotic animal farm died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound and then was bitten.

Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said at a news conference Thursday that the autopsy showed farm owner Terry Thompson had a bite wound on the head that appeared to have come from a large cat, such as a Bengal tiger.

Lutz says it appears the bite occurred quickly after Thompson shot himself.



Authorities say Thompson released his more than 50 animals before killing himself on Tuesday. Dozens of escaped tigers, lions and other beasts were shot by officers.
