Exotic animals staying at Columbus Zoo until further debate

COLUMBUS, Ind. -- For now, the six surviving animals from last week's exotic animal farm release in Ohio will stay at the Columbus Zoo.

Marian Thompson, the widow of the man who set them free just before killing himself, wanted the animals back. The Ohio Department of Agriculture however, has issued a quarantine order on the animals.

Thompson has the right to appeal. if she does she would be granted a hearing in 30 days.
