The word "euthanize" means "painless death" or "good death". It is hard to believe that a person who claims to love animals would allow these dogs to die, especially the way they died.
The last I heard, Ferree Kennels still uses the inhumane,cruel,barbaric carbon monoxide system produced by a power mower engine. Theses dogs were not euthanized, they were tortued and agonized to death by a system that should have been outlawed years ago. According to Ferree the carbon monoxide system is "economical".
How could Mayor Marton just turn these dogs over to Ferree when she knew the type of death they were facing?
