As if Ohio weren't a dangerous enough place to live, citizens in Zanesville are now being urged to stay indoors after 48 exotic animals escaped from a local nature preserve. Local authorities are now hunting tigers, lions, wolves, bears, and other exotic creatures after they were freed from The Muskingum County Animal Farm. The farm's owner was found dead while all of the cage doors were left open.

Cause of death in unknown at this time, and the release of the animals remains clouded in mystery. The only fact we have is that there is a town in Ohio being besieged by several aggressive animals. It's awesome. Just like a movie. As such, Ohio should check out these nine movie animal escapes. What they learn might just save their lives.

12 Monkeys

Are far as radical terrorist groups go, The Army of the Twelve Monkeys kind of suck at what they do. Yeah, sure, they're revered by citizens in the future because of the release of a killer virus. But, in truth, they weren't responsible for its release. That was just lucky timing. All they really did was f*ck up traffic in Philly by releasing a bunch of zoo animals.

Free Willy

When his life in captivity is threatened by Michael Ironside's greedy amusement park owner hoping to cash in a huge insurance settlement, Willy the Orca has no choice but to escape. Along with the help of a young boy, he escapes his tank and leaps to his freedom without crushing his savior. Suck it, Michael Ironside!!

Homeward Bound

Believing they've been abandoned by their vacationing owners, two dogs and a cat escape their pet-sitter and begin their trek home. These idiots fall in rivers, fight mountain lions, get attacked by porcupines, and then later, run away from their saviors. Nothing like this would have happened had they been crated.

Air Bud

Like many great people, Air Bud, the amazing basketball playing Golden Retriever, didn't have an easy upbringing. His owner was an abusive, alcoholic party clown who forced him into show business -- effectively robbing him of his puppyhood. When Buddy acted out (as child actors do) he was shipped off to the kill shelter. Luckily, he managed to escape during transport and find his way to a more deserving owner.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

When will scientists learn that attempting to cure Alzheimer's will only result in the escape of killer animals? James Franco obviously didn't heed this warning when he saw fit to engineer super-intelligence into a young primate. Though the experiment seemed to be a success at first, the meddling of man lead to the chimpanzee growing disenfranchised and butt-hurt. Naturally he led a revolution against the humans and took over civilization. He never did cure Alzheimer's, either.

Follow That Bird

When Sesame Street's Big Bird is captured by The Sleaz Brothers, a daring escape from their craphole carnival is called for. All of his friends band together and together and rescue him during a high-speed chase. Rumors of a Fast and the Furious style remake have been floating around for years.

Jurassic Park

Probably the scariest escapee on this list, the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park easily took over the theme park island when the power to their electric fences was sabotaged. The film made us all count our blessings that a global event was able to kill off dinosaurs before the existence of man. Our doors are powerless against them!!

Deep Blue Sea

I can understand mining a chimpanzee's brain for an Alzheimer's cure, but sharks? C'mon scientists. Enhancing a shark's ability to kill us is a whole-heartedly stupid idea. Though Alzheimer's is a heartbreaking disease, training an animal to eat Samuel L. Jackson in one gulp is far worse.

Snakes on a Plane

When a dangerous crime lord wants to assassinate the prosecutor's key witness, he's willing to take out an entire plane with him. By releasing snakes on the plane sensibly. Imprisoned in a crate with a timed release, every manner of dangerous, killer snake is released into the cargo hold of a cross-country flight. However, the snakes didn't realize they'd be going toe-to-tail with Samuel L. Jackson, who fares much better in this fight than he does  against super-smart sharks.
