I am appalled that the major, police chief, and council members apparently don't care about their community and how angry people are. This humane officer has no compassion and is a danger to the community. If I lived in North Ridgeville I would seriously consider moving. This is not a humane way to kill animals. I mean death row inmates are put to death more humanely than these kittens. This women and her children are scarred for life. If the city wont' do anything then this women should consider filing a lawsuit for emotional distress. People are really getting fed up with authorizes being above the law.

I am appalled as well. Mayor and other community officials appear to be a spineless idiots. Word is out. Accorti is toast and now advocacy groups know as well as the entire nation.
Have it your way if you opt not to voluntarily make Accorti accountable. Animal advocates will be in your face at every turn. BTW, If you treat animals in such a manner, how exactly do you treat other people? I am sure folks in the area will ultimately talk.

Totally unforgivable to the nth degree. I am glad I live far away from your godforsaken town. I hope all of you in charge - those responsible and those who seem happy with and defend the horrific result - get fired immediately, never get another job of any sort, and NEVER live down the infamy of your horrible deed.
