Grace was one of four dogs scheduled to be euthanized in the Liberty County Animal Control Office. The procedure was successful on only three. "Amazing" Grace survived and those who pulled her out of the chamber say they never want to see that again. Grace recovered and was adopted.
Cases like Grace's aren't uncommon. That room for error, as well as the sometimes violent deaths from the gas, is why shelters should use injections instead of gas.
Hinesville officials say they've discontinued the gas chamber and want to retire the method in favor of injections. "We wish we didn't have to put any animals to sleep, but when we do, we want to do it in the most humane way. We hope Grace's story will be a catalyst to stop the use of these chambers everywhere".
It is a terrifying and brutal way to die and it needs to be outlawed.
