The cat problem has come up in town meetings. But as Russo has said, you grab a cat you "think" is a stray and it might be someone's pet.While it's great that ACO Russo gets his moment in the sun, it's a shame that this story makes no mention of the fact that New Britain has a serious feline overpopulation problem - one which Officer Russo and the city's officials do little to nothing to solve. Dog issues are not the only companion animal calls that our city should address.
Overall, I'd give him an A-. The only knock is that time we had a hurt pitbull in our neighborhood that he couldn't catch. I offered to let him borrow my .45 but he said he'd get it with a .22. Are you nuts? Fire off a .22 in a residential neighbornood. If you miss, the round will travel forever.
