A hunt for exotic cats turns up nothing in 12 hour search

GREEN COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) -- You may have seen some grumblings on social media about SWAT teams looking for tigers at a house.
Well it turns out there were no tigers or any exotic cats.  Just some chickens, goats and unlicensed dogs.  But a SWAT team was on the property in Green County near Dayton for about 12 hours.  They even blocked off streets while they searched the property.    
A neighbor had been complaining for a few months of hearing loud strange noises.  One home had been a site of wild animals in the past.  In the late 90's a lion and a Siberian tiger got loose from that same property.
The lion was shot and killed.
