Three leopards, a grizzly bear and two monkeys are the only animals that remain alive after Ohio authorities used high-powered rifles to hunt down dozens of exotic animals released by a farm owner near Zanesville on Tuesday. The owner killed himself after letting the creatures loose, police say.

The surviving animals are being held at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Gov. John Kasich announced he will sign an executive order banning the ownership of exotic animals; he let a similar ban expire in April.
