America's Animal Hoarder: Horror At The Zoo - True Stories

10:00pm Thursday, August 9 on C4

True Stories offers the first exclusive documentary on the extraordinary events that shook a small American town in Ohio when one man’s collection of almost 50 dangerous animals, including lions, tigers and bears, were found roaming free in a residential area. The creatures belonged to notorious local figure Terry Thompson, who had amassed a private collection of exotic pets. Thompson was later found dead on his farm, partially eaten by his own animals. True Stories tells the compelling story of this bizarre incident.
