30 help demolish cat gas chamber

Associated Press • Mar 25, 2014 at 3:50 PM

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported the gas chamber was demolished in a public event Saturday in the parking lot of the Medina County Animal Shelter

   The society had invited people to take a sledge hammer to the gas chamber in exchange for a donation to the society.

   The debate over the fate of the carbon-monoxide chamber began after county commissioners voted unanimously in November to stop accepting cats at the county kennel, effectively ending the chamber’s use.

   The county stopped killing dogs in the chamber several years ago because of public opposition.
