“killing tools which shelters possess”

My mother runs a shelter.

I just laid out $73 to tranquilize and euthanize a 18 year old cat. Mom's shelter is a “no kill”, which means she contracts out the kills to local veterinarians.

There really is no such thing as a “no kill” shelter, just one that shelters until a off site humane mechanism becomes necessary.

I have seen hundreds of cats, dogs, sheep, horses, bovines and even alpacas put down. Always a little late (IMO) and always in humane manner at much cost. I do not consider shooting an animal inhumane as a method. Killing with a blade however is another thing. Maybe I am just a sissy

Its not pretty but done properly the animal feels very little pain. The method I’m referring to has been used by the Jews for thousands of years. I doubt these boneheads did it properly though. A shotgun is about the messiest way possible to put down an animal.

Using a blade is much more personal than a firearm. There are people here in Florida who hunt wild hogs with a knife.
