    Animals escape

    Lions, tigers and grizzly bears have terrorised a small US town after escaping from a nearby animal park. The dangerous predators were among almost 50 animals that were reported to be wandering around the rural Ohio town of Zanesville. They were spotted after the owner of Muskingum County Animal Farm was found dead and the cages unlocked. "We've got a little bit of a list compiled. Mainly, there were grizzly bears and black bears there. There were cheetahs, there were lions, and there were tigers. "These were the primary things that we would be concerned with. Any kind of a cat species and any kind of a bear species right now is what we're mainly concerned with," explained Sheriff Matt Lutz. The police department received panicked calls from people who had spotted the beasts roaming on a nearby highway. Schools have been ordered to close and residents have been told to stay inside while the hunt continues. There have been no reports of any injuries. Officers shot a number of animals when they arrived at the park where they discovered the owner, 62-year-old Terry Thompson, dead and the fences unsecured and cages open. Mr Thompson had been released from prison three weeks earlier after serving a one-year term for firearms charges, according to the Columbus Dispatch newspaper. The 40-acre preserve housed large cats, various bears, wolves, giraffes and camels, as well as orangutans and cheetahs, still in their cages. All 48 of the large animals on the grounds were thought to have escaped. "One of the deputies told me they felt they had shot approximately 25 on the way up to the house to check on Mr Thompson," said Sheriff Lutz. "So, you know, that number could be high or low, depending. You know, when they're shooting animals in all directions, it's hard to keep track." Kate Riley, 20, whose family owns a nearby cattle farm, said Mr Thompson would come and take their dead cows to feed his lions. "He'd have claw marks all over him," she told the newspaper. She added that she believed Mr Thompson's wife had recently left him and moved out. Staff from the Columbus Zoo and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources were called in to help police handle the situation.

    Hoping to escape!

    Hi, Just introducing ourselves though I have been reading the boards for a while! We are hoping to emigrate at some point with our two little girls ( 2.5y and 8 months). I'm a medical laboratory scientist and hubby is a joiner and we'll probably apply to WA for SS for my occupation. I also have a 15 year old daughter who I'm hoping will come with us though it's not certain, my hubby has an 18 year old daughter who probably won't but might have some long holidays in Oz! We've both been to Australia separately and love the place. We're hoping for a better future for us and the girls as well as fitting in a bit of scuba diving along the way! We're at the start of what seems to be a long journey but hoping we get there in the end and it's already been really useful to read the experiences and advice on PIO! :biggrin: Becky, Steve and kids.
  4. Hello everyone. I'm a newbie wanting some advice. My problem is.....I don't know where to start looking? Where do you find out about sponsorships? Where/how do I apply? I'm a trauma nurse currently working in London. I would like to find a job in trauma nursing/orthopeadics over in Oz, my dream is to work in a busy A & E one day when I have more experience. I have been qualified for a year. My current job also has a trauma HDU rotatation, therefore I will also have HDU experience in a couple of months. My mum and stepdad live near Gosford so to work near them or in Sydney would be prefered but I would move to any other location in Oz as they would be just a short plane ride away. Thanks for reading.....any help would be great. Emma xxx

  6. Hi there fellow hopeful escapees I hope that someone can help us. I'm an ITU nurse and my husband is an IT analyst. Does anyone know how much experience ITU nurses are expected to have to get sponsorship for 457 Visa in either Queensland or NSW? Also, as anyone completed the 'Recognition of Prior Learning' skills assessment to get membership to the Australian Computer Society? And if you have how long does it take to come through, and do you have any tips for applying? Thank you, Heather and Dean xx :emoticon-signxmas:
