Tattooing raises money for surviving Ohio animals

Exotic animal tattoos support surviving animals released by Ohio farm owner, who killed self By The Associated Press

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) ' People getting tattoos have helped the surviving exotic animals from an Ohio farm where the owner opened the cages and then killed himself last week.

Tattoo artist Billy White says he'll donate the proceeds from tattoos of tigers and other exotic animals that customers bought through Saturday at his shop in Zanesville, the city near Terry Thompson's farm.

Multiple media outlets report White raised more than $1,000 for the six animals that were captured and are now being cared for at the Columbus Zoo. Police shot to death 48 others, including 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears.

White says he wanted to make something positive out of the tragedy.

No one knows for sure why the 62-year-old Thompson did what he did.
