Dora'smom : I don't think there is anything humane about drowning an animal. The fight for life while submerged goes on whether you care to think about it or not. That's how I felt about the drowning. Not to judge anyone else...it was what we were going to have to do if we couldn't think of another option. It's as humane as I can think of and I hope the poor beast suffers less than my chicken did when he killed her.
