COLUMBIA STATION, Ohio (AP) - A lawyer says an eviction notice
has been served on the owner of a bear that killed its caretaker in
A lawyer for property owner William Arroyo says Sam Mazzola was
notified Thursday that he has to move unless he gets insurance by
Sept. 27 to cover accidents involving his exotic animals.
Authorities said Mazzola had bears, wolves and possibly a lion and
three or four tigers at the property.
A bear owned by Mazzola killed 24-year-old Brent Kandra on Aug.
19 during feeding. It has since been euthanized.
Attorney Brian Kraig says Arroyo bought Mazzola's property
southwest of Cleveland in March and was having problems with
Mazzola over unpaid rent and lack of insurance before. Kraig says
Mazzola has 30 days to appeal the notice.
