I haven't read every response on this since it is 4 pages of outraged people, none of whom have lived on a farm or a ranch. It is common practice to
drown puppies and kittens in rural areas because the populations can quickly get out of control. Do the math, you have a dog that has a litter of six
puppies, 3 of which are female. Each of these will have 6 puppies a year for 10 years. Cats, even more. How long before your farm or ranch is over
run by dogs and cats, and how long before they are sick and infecting the other animals that you are raising.
Please don't kill the messenger, as I personally have never done this, but as a teen I worked at a horse ranch that was surrounded by medium sized
farms near where microsoft is now, and drowning puppies and kittens was a normal occurance for all of the reasons I have listed above.
Now get off your high horses, because if any of you lived on a farm you would have done this too.
