Ohio zoo returns surviving exotic animals to widow

Workers transport an animal from the Columbus Zoo in Columbus, Ohio on Friday, May 4, 2012 as Marian Thompson, center, touches the cage, to bring it back to Zanesville, Ohio. Thompson is the widow of Terry Thompson, who released 56 animals, including black bears, mountain lions and Bengal tigers, from his eastern Ohio farm Oct. 18 before he committed suicide. Five of the surviving animals, two leopards, two primates and a bear have been held at the Columbus zoo since October, when state officials had ordered that the animals be quarantined on suspicion of infectious diseases. That order was lifted on Monday by Ohio's agriculture director. (AP Photo/The Columbus Dispatch, Tom Dodge)
