UPDATE: No Wild Animals Found on Greene Co. Farm

ROSS TOWNSHIP -- A swat team surrounded a farm for hours and you'll never believe what they were looking for. Tigers and lions!

Greene County Sheriff's Deputies tell us after neighbor complaints of loud noises, they began their search of the property in the 2900 block of South Charleston Rd. Thursday morning.

A team of over 35 investigators searched every inch of the farm looking for large cats for 12 hours.

 Investigators say they believe the animals to be dangerous and a potential threat to the public, so they blocked of the surrounding streets leading to the property and took their time combing every corner of the farm.

"There's a tactical team going thought the property. There's a large building with multiple rooms multiple levels so their taking their time going through making sure everything is clear," Erika Hawkins, Ohio Department of Agriculture, explained Thursday.

Investigators didn't find any tigers or lions on the property. They did find a few chickens, goats and unlicensed dogs that were taken to an animal shelter.

Greene County Sheriff's Office has come to this property before for wild animals. In 1998 they shot and killed a lioness on the farm.

Owners of the home couldn't be reached Thursday. The investigation is still open.


GREENE COUNTY -- Officials with the Department of Agriculture are searching a property for wild animals.

The investigation began after crews received a lead that wild animals, specifically large cats, were being kept on the property illegally.       

Our crews spoke to Erica Hawkins with the Ohio Department of Agriculture, who says they've only searched about one-third of the property so far.

Although the specific address has not been revealed, it is near the Clark/Greene County line.
