Officer Cleared After Shooting Litter of Kittens in Front of Kids

By David Edwards

A police department in Ohio on Tuesday defended a humane officer who shot and killed a litter of feral kittens and told nearby children that the animals would be going to “kitty heaven.”

An executive with the Ohio Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals told the Sun News that Humane Officer Barry Accorti had responded to a complaint from a Vista Lake Way homeowner on Monday about a litter of kittens living in her woodpile.

“He informed her that shelters were full and that these cats would be going to kitty heaven,” Ohio SPCA Executive Director Teresa Landon explained to the paper. “She assumed he would be trapping them or something and taking them to a shelter and they would be humanely euthanized if they were not adopted.”

“Instead, he went to his truck and got a gun, which she thought was a tranquilizer gun, and walked around to the back of the house and approximately 15 feet from her back door shot and killed the 8- to 10-week-old kittens.”

Landon said the officer began shooting the animals in front of the homeowner and within in range of her young children.

“Her children were upstairs in view of the windows. They started screaming and crying because they heard the gunshots. They started screaming, 'Mommy, he's killing the kittens,'” Landon noted. “It's heartbreaking… There is no excuse for it. It's absolutely shameful that someone with the title of humane officer would do this.”

The SPCA called for Accorti to be fired, but North Ridgeville Police Department Chief Mike Freeman released a statement defending his actions.

9638 Shot with a shotgun? The cats probably felt nothing. And who cares? they are cats. Good riddance. She shouldn't have called the humane society and then complain when they show up and do the job. Grow up you whiners.

6578 The Humane Society thinks this is ok? Disgusting. Those kittens should have been removed and humanely euthanized, not slaughtered in front of families and children.

99181 so like the story where the guy shot into the ground when he encountered an intruder and they arrested him for endangerment saying the bullet could "skip"? Wasn't this person endangering a few lives, how many counts?

And I would sleep better at night if some cop with a shotgun blew you and your mother away. The cop should shoot your mother just to make sure she didn't reproduce any more morons like you.

70199 That officer should be fired. That is ridiculous. I would have slapped him in the face if I was her. I cannot believe that the Ohio police department would rather be called inhumane and slaughterers rather than firing that asshole. That officer doesn't have a heart. I hope he doesn't have kids he would be a horrible father and I would fear for those children. Karma is a bitch hope he is ready.

678 No big deal. It's humane. Even if the kittens had been taken to the shelter, they soon would have been dead anyway. No kittens in the woodpile anymore; just what the caller wanted.

And the kiddies have had a wonderful learning experience to let them know what to expect when the government and/or business decides they are redundant.

50104 Hey! I understand fully. Come on, guys! Those damned kittens were cutting into his donut time!

Never call the officials. They're running under the UCC where you have few rights or privs.

72234 Those cats could have been a terrorist cell. Cats are notorious for duplicity. Thank God for Humane Officers. They should share Obama's Nobel Prize and Kissinger's Intrepid Freedom Award!
