I’m sorry, I simply could not watch this, I know that is terrible, but I love dogs so much it is unbearable to watch them being killed.  It would be like watching children being murdered.  I simply cannot do it.  All I can say is this:  Dogs have been living with humans for possibly the last 50,000 years, indeed, since the very beginning of our becoming a distinct species.  We have bonded with them as we have with no other animal on the planet.  To kill them, to murder them, to slaughter them is the most loathsome betrayal of friendship that can possibly exist.  Everyone involved should be deeply ashamed.
