NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio - North Ridgeville city officials expect a big turnout at the city council meeting Monday night after five kittens were shot last week.
Dozens of people are expected to voice their concerns about the feral kittens being killed in the backyard of a home. The kittens were shot by North Ridgeville humane officer Barry Accorti, the police department said.
City officials said that the officer was following department policy and will not be disciplined. But, at least one North Ridgeville City Council member said perhaps that policy needs to be examined.
"Yes, I think it is time to sit down and review what is there," said council member Bernadine Butkowski.
Council has received more than 500 emails. The city's mayor said he has received roughly 800 emails from people who are mostly upset over how the situation was handled.
