Law enforcement officials said Wednesday afternoon that they had accounted for all but one of a menagerie of animals released from an Ohio farm, with just a monkey remaining on the loose.

Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz said a missing bear and mountain lion were shot dead and a lion made it to a private backyard, where it died. They were among 56 exotic animals released Tuesday from Terry Thompson’s farm outside Zanesville, according to sheriff’s deputies.

They said Wednesday afternoon that a wolf, previously unaccounted for, had been killed Tuesday night.

Deputies warned the monkey may be infected with the herpes B virus.
