Yep...being cruel is the key. Humanely put them down if absolutely necessary. Reminds me of the greyhound business....another bunch of sick individuals going to straight to hell.
Done properly the knife is humane if messy. Doesn’t sound like these guys gave a thought to humane. A simple .22 would have been much better if they lacked the drugs.
From what I’ve read sled dogs do not make good pets. Still a cryin shame to destroy so many beautiful animals. I’m sure lack of money to feed them had something to do with the decision.
Greyhound business takes it to a whole new level. There the dogs live in misery but will eventually be put down humanely.
