.--Gas chambers are a prolonged and painful way to euthanize abandoned and stray animals and should be outlawed, a state lawmaker says. "Having them gasping for breath for five or 10 minutes seems a particularly cruel method of euthanizing an animal,"

I can't believe this outdated and inhumane practice still goes on. It is like these states are still living in the dark ages. They should be ashamed.

And as far as dangerous animals goes I worked in a wildlife hospital in England. We would never have used gas as a method of euthanasia. If the animal can't be held safely an intramuscular sedative can be given - Happy Time for the animal and the lethal iv injection can then be administered safely and calmly. How incompetent are some of these people and how cowardly to put an animal in a box and gas it?
