NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio humane officer has been fired after he was accused of breaching procedure in killing five baby rabbits.
A man had asked North Ridgeville police for help after he accidentally killed a rabbit with his lawnmower and then discovered five more. The man, Sheldon Jones, says he thought the surviving animals might be taken to a shelter. Instead, he says Humane Officer Barry Accorti grabbed them, took them to his truck and quickly broke their necks.
Police say Barry Accorti was fired Wednesday, but they don’t believe he broke any laws.
Accorti spent three decades as a police officer in North Ridgeville and rejoined the department as a humane officer after his retirement. He declined to comment on his firing.
