Deputies know who dumped kitten in trash

CANFIELD — Detectives with the Mahoning County Sheriff’s office know who put a kitten into a garbage receptacle in Canfield Township in November, but have not filed charges against him.

The reason is that detectives sent the kitten to a state laboratory to have a necropsy conducted to determine what caused its death. Detectives are waiting for the results, said detective Patrick Mondora.

The sheriff’s office released a surveillance video to the public showing the man who put the kitten into the trash receptacle behind Youngstown Tile, at the corner of U.S. Route 224 and Palmyra Road Nov. 29. The next day, employees found the kitten in the trash, but it died.
