Police Blotter: Throwing Kittens Out Car Window; Other Animal Incidents
The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department
A woman went to St. Francis Animal Hospital, 8600 Pearl Rd., with a kitten about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 27 and said someone in a dark-colored car had thrown it -- and other kittens -- out the window.
The 12-week-old kitty taken to the vet did not live, a report said.
Officers checked the area near Gas & Food, where the incident reportedly took place, but found no other cats.
Pony on the Road
A horse escaped from its fence and took a run on Albion Road about 5 p.m. Aug. 28.
The owner and some helpers were able to round it up and take it back to safety.
Motorcycle Vs. Deer
A man was thrown from his motorcycle about 8 p.m. Aug. 28 when he hit a deer on Progress Drive, a report said.
The man scraped his leg, but was otherwise not injured. The deer was killed.
A man stopped for expired license plates on Albion Road at Gate Post Aug. 28 offered up an excuse -- they'd had a temporary tag on the car, but it blew off.
The officer ran the registration and found there had, in fact, been a temporary tag issued -- but it expired in July.
The driver got two citations.
More Gunfire Reported
A West 130th Street resident reported hearing two shots from a high-powered rifle about 11 p.m. Aug. 28.
Police checked the area, but couldn't find anything suspicious.
