The blame should be put where it belongs...on the shoulders of the man who unlocked the animals cages, released them, and then shot himself. All of this tragedy falls on this mentally disturbed man.
The officers did the best they could in a horrific situation. My heart breaks for these beautiful animals, but they couldn't be allowed to roam the streets with night coming on and them getting hungrier by the moment. The officers couldn't take a chance that these animals could kill someone. They did the right thing, no matter how much it breaks my heart.
