ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Petting zoo equipment and ponies will be up for auction from the estate of a suicidal man who released dozens of exotic animals in eastern Ohio almost two years ago.

The items are among thousands from Terry Thompson's estate that could be purchased Wednesday at his farm in Zanesville.

Jeff Koehler, owner of SE Ohio Auctions, says among the highlights of the auction are Thompson's vintage cars, which include a 1934 Ford Coupe and a 1967 Chevy Chevelle. More than 60 cars will be up for bid, along with motorcycles, car parts and an Amish buggy.

Other pieces include a bulldozer, an aluminum fence and boxes of magazines dating back to the 1970s.

Koehler says he's charging a $25-per-car admission fee.
