A tattoo artist is lending his talent to help the remaining exotic animals from a Muskingum County farm where the owner opened the cages and then killed himself last week.

 
Billy White, a tattoo artist at Yellow Rose Tattoos in Zanesville, says he planned to donate the proceeds made from tattoos of exotic animals through Saturday.
 
White says he's raised close to $2,000 and he plans on extending the benefit another week.
 
"We've had 25 to 26 people who have gotten tattoos in the last four years and I believe we're probably going to end up getting that much if not more within this week," White said. 
 
The six surviving animals are now being taken care of at the Columbus Zoo.  
 
It is reported police shot and killed 48 animals.  Among them were 18 rare Bengal tigers, 17 lions and eight bears.
