Sheriff from exotics case appointed to Ohio board

The sheriff who oversaw the response to an exotic animal release has been appointed to a new Ohio commission tasked with developing a plan to react if a dangerous wild animal escapes.

The panel was created under the law that took effect last month and set new restrictions for exotic pets. It calls for the governor to appoint two of the eight members.

Gov. John Kasich on Friday named Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz to represent local law enforcement. Lutz got national attention last fall when he ordered officers to kill lions, tigers and other exotic animals released by a suicidal owner in Zanesville.

Kasich also appointed Pamela White of Blacklick to represent the owners of dangerous wild animals.
