I am glad to see a bill to stop euthanasia of animals in general in Gas Chambers. This is a favorite way of the Animal Rights groups such as HSUS and PETA and others to so call save Game Fowl when they were confinscated. I guess they will have to find another cruel way to euthanize Game Fowl when they go to save them as they say.
