Reading that link makes for a more interesting picture.

Now how is it that this "bystander" calls the police. This Officer Corry showed up quickly and was able to shoot the cat and leave the disposal of this cat to this "bystander" so quickly and efficiently? Single bullet to the head of a "stray cat that was wandering the alley"? That is one heck of a shot. Would the officer if questioned in a oh let's say a criminal lawsuit, be able to describe the distance and conditions of that shot? I mean I have seen many stay cats in my lifetime. And most cats do like me, but most stay cats will run if you focus your attention on them or get too close.

In fact the more I read about this incident, the more I am beginning to think that this was an arranged deal and the "bystander" is more than just a random concerned individual. I would suspect there may have been some sort of collusion. Perhaps a conspiracy to commit cruelty to an animal. And maybe a particular animal at that. Say, one that might have used a flower bed as a liter box from time to time or something of the sort?

Maybe this needs a little more investigation by someone outside of Lebanon, Ohio.

there's a lot more wrong with this story - once you get past the fact that an innocent cat was shot in the head by a cop

because that happens all the time - right?

You've said a couple of times now that no one is responsible for my pet but me. Certainly.

So why did the cops "take responsibility" for someone elses pet?

When the caller phoned in shouldnt they have said "not our responsibility" and let it be?

Going out and shooting it is taking responsibility.

What's the difference if my kid wandered out a back door and was playing in an alley? Could be a stray. Could be carrying some disease. Would the police arrive to a "sickly child" call and shoot the kid? Why not? What's the difference?

The "sickly cat" excuse is pretty much nullified by the fact that the bystander removed the carcass. If disease were really the concern the bystander would not have been permitted to touch the carcass. Unless contradictory departmental ignorance is par for the course at this PD. Gotta shoot the cat, it might be sick. Once it's dead let anyone run up and paw at the body. Does that make sense?

Seems like an awful lot of time, grief and money could have been spared if the police didnt take responsibility for somebody elses pet.

Just let nature take its course. Let it get hit by a car. Let it bite somebody and the family be sued. Let it just eat some trash, mark a spot and return home. All easier than sending a taxpayer funded hit squad to discharge their firearms in a densely populated residential zone.

Since when did pigs have beef with cats? Whatever happened to the old saying "live and let live"?
