Perhaps the most disturbing video I've ever seen
This is maybe the most disturbing video I've ever almost watched. I couldn't watch the whole thing - it's a video from North Carolina that shows not just one, two, three, or four - but a whole bunch of dogs being put into a box tobe gassed to death. It's completely crazy. It shows them opening the box top to put more dogs in and the dogs inside trying to get out. And once they've killed the first batch of dogs - they come out with a litter of puppies - they look like lab puppies - and put them ON TOP OF - the dead dogs that they've just killed, and then gas those dogs - and I guess - regass the original dogs - maybe they're doing that for good measure.
I've never seen anything like it - we've all heard about it - but until you've seen it - you never understand what it's like. For anyone to say that this is in any way humane - has never actually experienced it. If you're going to be a kill facility - you've got to provide a good and peaceful death - and using a gas machine definitely does not provide that.
I'm very happy that the Cape Breton SPCA has said that they aren't using their gas box anymore. I really hope they aren't
