Fire Humane Officer for Shooting Feral Kittens in Ohio Backyard!
Target: North Ridgeville Police Department
Sponsored by: Brittany E.G.
Humane Officer Barry Accorti recently shot and killed five kittens in an Ohio woman's backyard -- in front of her screaming, crying children.
Accorti is a retired sergeant from the North Ridgeville Police Department and is now working as a part-time "humane" officer. He responded to a call from a woman about a feral mother cat and her five kittens who were living in a woodpile in her backyard.
Accorti told the woman that shelters were full, and although he wasn't supposed to do this, was going to send the kittens to "kitty heaven". He then proceeded to take out his gun and do just that, as the woman's children watched in horror from an upstairs window.
As of now, the police chief is not planning on doing anything about Accorti or the disgusting, horrible way in which this situation was handled.
Please tell the North Ridgeville Police Department to fire Officer Barry Accorti for murdering the kittens and charge him with five counts of animal cruelty!
I believe they have exceeded their 50,000 signatures but a few more won't hurt.
My cats are cuter than your grandkids!
