Got the stomach to know more horrorful truths?

Not all are injected the killer solution through the vein. Many are simply stabbed in the heart (the small ones (especially tiny kittens) whose limbs are small the veins are near impossible to locate, let alone insert a needle. Others are so dehydrated that the veins are collapsed and the needle cannot be inserted). So just plunge the needle hard into the heart through the chest.

Many too, are simply dunked into water and drowned - it is faster and more economical by far.

Others are simply flung into the dens of tigers and lions to be eaten dead or alive.
