Terry Thompson of Zanesville, OH set dozens of animals, including Bengal tigers, lions, wolves, monkeys and bears loose from an animal preserve before killing himself.
Police hunted the animals through the night and by the next afternoon, 49 of the 50 animals were confirmed dead.
Three leopards, a grizzly bear and two Macaques were taken to the Columbus Zoo.
Thompson’s wife, Marian Thompson, visited the surviving animals, which she called “her children,” on Thursday and desperately pleaded for their return.
Marian Thompson told a zoo official that she is especially bonded with the surviving pair of primates. She revealed to Stalf that when she was still living at the farm the surviving female Macaque would sleep with her.
