A commercial kennel owner in New York destroyed 93 dogs using a hose connected to a farm engine and pumping carbon monoxide into a makeshift "gas chamber."

I wish that everyone would look up CARBON MONOXIDE gas on the internet you are painting a bad picture of Mr David Yoder for no reason.

Carbon Monoxide is colorless, Odorless and tasteless ( this is from Wikipedia ) about 500 people die a year from Carbon Monoxide and about 2000 people commit suicide using Carbon Monoxide.

In the USA the gas chamber was used to kill people up until 1999.

The health of his family and neighbors were in danger so he put the dogs to sleep using a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas. He didn't hit them on the head, he didn't shot them, and he didn't cut their neck, like they do in meat processing plants that is under the control of the USDA.

Some more information that I just got off the internet PETA's animal record report for 2009, filed with Virgina Department of Agrriculture and Consumer Services, shows that they killed 97% of the dogs and cats in its care last Year, 8 animals were given homes 2,358 were killed by PETA last year alone. Just think about the past 10 years how many animals that PETA killed or murdered after they saved them, and how many millions of dollars in donations were they given to care these animals, what did they do with the money?????

They spend millions on advertising to put farmers out of business.

Because of groups like this people are going to go hungry because the cost of food is going to get so hi.
and hundreds of other products.

Food is going to stay cheap and contaminated with ecoli, parasites, additives, antibiotics and lots of other terrible things because of over crowded factory farms, and places like Yoder's puppy mills. Factory farms are putting the decent American farmers out of business. We also have so many products on the market now our consumerism is destroying the planet.Animals deserve to be treated humanely.Puppy mills like human trafficing are sick industries. People who want a decent quality of food and decent treatment and care for animals are not the bad guys. Yoder and his home made gas chamber need to go to jail and he needs to be prosecuted.

If carbon minoxide that he used was so odorless, colorless, etc...why did he have to leave them to die alone? Oh that's right, the fumes gave him headaches. I hope he rots for what he did to those dogs. May also want to check out the other property he owns to make sure its not a part of the puppy mill (death chamber) operation. Animals can't speak for themselves or I'm pretty sure they would have told Mr and Mrs Yoder that they were unhappy with their living (and dying) conditions.
