Not only was school cancelled for local kiddies, but most of the townies were locked in their homes while police and rescue workers hunted down ( and killed) most of the exotic pets. That seems like a real shame to me. They used tranquilizers where they could, but apparently most of the animals were shot anyway. I never really understood why private citizens would want to to 'keep' exotic animals. The risks seems kind of high to me.
