Police in Lebanon ,Ohio shoot lost cat-see story on Channel 12 website.
Hold muh beer:” The only good cat is a dead cat”.
Sorry,I hope the link works now.
Must have been one mean kitty. Now cops are shooting family cats???
What an idiotic thing to say.
Guess the pig got tired of killing dogs. Shooting a 20 pound cat? The only circumstance where he was possibly threatened was his own active duty.
Harrison,Ohio cops were shooting cats at night back in the 1980s.Can you say illegal acts committed under color of law? And reckless discharge of a firearm within city limits? BUt cops are immune from actually following the laws it appears.I despise law-breaking cops.
There’s a T-shirt in there someplace. Cops shoot dogs, cops shoot cats. God forbid they’d shoot a burglar or robber or some human.
Good thing he wasn’t trying to get Kitty out of the tree. This is the proper way.
As a retired police officer, I find this disgusting. To allow this police officer to even own a weapon is outrageous. How the hell did he pass the physiological exam to even put on the uniform?
Wish there was more to the story, not that I think it would make much difference.
I respect your service and thank you for it. But it would seem some sort of madness or panic has infected the police throughout the country. It’s on this site all the time. What’s going on, in your opinion?
So, they’re starting to shoot kitties, too, eh?
I don’t think it’s really that serious. I’m sure there are many more times cops have encountered dogs and NOT shot them in the same time frame than have. You only hear about the times a dog was shot.
Home owner asks her BIL ‘Is that (unknown) cat dead?”
BIL says, “No, but it’s sick.” Calls police.
Officer approaches cat. It doesn’t move, and all cats run away from strangers.
Officer realizes cat is sick, possibly rabid, and kills it.
Officer makes major mistake by not calling animal control. Officer should have made sure that no one approaches the cat until animal control removes it.
Officer, BIL, homeowner and the cat family need to be tested. By this time, they should all be getting medicine.
This great big chain of failure seems to start with those neighbours... why do you call the cops for a sick cat in your backyard???
FRiend, this was a cat.
