“PETA and the HS are not as easy to deal with as one would believe, especially with a hundred animals involved. There would be significant cost involved in transport and disposal.”
Right PETA and HS kill animals for economic reasons, just as this company did.
PETA doesn’t always dispose of animals properly. The case where they killed over 200 dogs and dumped the bodies in a garbage dumpster.
There is no way on earth that euthanizing a dog with a knife can be reasonably justified as economically expedient.
