They shoot horses, don't they? And dogs and cats and even domestic beavers. They shoot them with them up with an euthanasia drug that puts them peacefully asleep.
But in 42 states of the USA the triple drug cocktail that is supposed to lull citizens receiving the capital punishment is banned for use with non-homo sapiens animals.
Veternarian Anna Male- Mejor explained that the three shot method used on citizen criminals is a disaster. The first is a sedative that hardly ever works. The second is a paralyzer that rarely does its job. So when the killer punch comes the poor bastard or bitch is awake and aware.
Euthanasia advocate Jalen Bird- Kay wants to see the animal put-to-sleeper used on grandma, gramps and every loved one: "Why can we put Puss n' Boots and Fido to sleep and Grandma has to suffer for forty days and forty nights?"
