Cop Shoots Litter of Kittens In Front of Kids and Mom


When Officer Barry Accorti showed up to respond to a call about a litter of wild kittens and their mother, he explained to the homeowner and her children that the “shelters are too full”. The humane officer said he would be right back, and he quickly shuffled to his vehicle while the family discussed options. They had no idea what was about to happen next…

The family who though they were doing the right thing, calling to have the family of felines removed, was considering what to do next. Should they take the cats in since the shelter was too full? Should they put up an ad on CraigsList, or circulate flyers on their block to help find a good home for the cats?

Before they could talk it over, the officer interrupted, saying that he was going to “send them to ‘Kitty Heaven’.” Without wasting any time, only 15 feet away from the children, he opened fire, obliterating the litter of kittens.

The homeowner’s children, ranging in age from 5 months to 7 years, stood at the window watching and screaming, “Mommie, he’s killing the kittens!”

According to the North Ridgeville Police Department, in Ohio, the humane officer did nothing wrong.

Police Chief Mike Freeman defended the shooting and said that it was a method of euthanasia. He clarified that “the officers will not face any disciplinary actions.”
