A North Ridgeville, Ohio, woman, who wasn't identified by local media, called animal control about several feral kittens living near her house. She said they were causing a flea problem and wanted to get rid of them. The woman says she knew they'd be put down, but she said she didn't realize the police officer who responded would shoot them right there, just 15 feet from her patio. Police Chief Mike Freeman said the officer acted appropriately and won't be disciplined.
