Police find 8 Ohio kids locked in cages

>From Chris Browne


(CNN) -- Police in northern Ohio on Monday rescued eight children whose
parents told authorities they kept the kids in locked cages for their
own protection.

The children, ages 1 to 14, were found locked in cages at their home in
Wakeman, about 40 miles southwest of Cleveland, according to Lt. Randy
Sommers of the Huron County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said the kids were kept in wooden cages, less than 3 feet
by 3 feet, without pillows or blankets.

Shortly after being found, the children were sent to Fisher-Titus
Medical Center in Norwalk, where they were listed in good condition.

The children's parents, Mike and Sharon Gravelle, had 11 children in
all, according to authorities.

Police said no charges had been filed against the parents.

"Basically, the parents thought they were providing for the protection
of the children from themselves and from each other," said Sommers.

"They thought there was circumstances with these children that
warranted the cages at night," Sommers added, but he would not go into
details of what those circumstances were.

All 11 of the children found in the home have been placed in the
custody of the Huron County Department of Children and Families.
