Bronson, I've been there. We had 4 dogs and one of them had cancer. Nothin we could do about it except put her down. She had no idea, but when you see that dog that you grew up with just "faint" in your arms. Its probably one of the most traumatic, heart breaking things you'll ever experience.

nowadays most vets will euthenize a pet for free, but when I was a kid it ussually cost more than treatment. We didn't have money, so if a rabbit got mauled by a dog or a cat got sick, Dad (and later me, when i was old enough) would have to put the pellet rifle against their head and do it ourselves. pretty rough. My only dog, being too big, got a cocktail of antifreeze, booze, and vicodin. He belched, fell asleep, and never woke up.

@Polarman: if these things are unavailable and the Humane Society can't help, consider using your snowshovel for a quick boot-assisted beheading (hardcore but effective). Try to use another method if its a pet though, I'm talking about a hurt squirrel or something.

@Kitty-Kat: I know this disgusts you, but not everyone has what we consider "basic services," especially in the Artic Booneys. Polar's heart was in the right place. And bad place to say it, but...HI! Missed ya, how ya been?

We do not know the extent of the injuries suffered by the puppy. PolarMan, to my knowledge, has no veterinary experience and may not have been able to tell if the puppy was treatable.
Their humane society has planes going to Ottawa on an almost weekly basis and after talking to them on the phone they sound reasonably competent, with basic medical care and stabilization.
The humane society should have been involved, as well as the police. If the puppy was that badly hurt by a human, the person needs to be persecuted.

American Veterinary Medical Association strongly advises against decapitation as the decapitated head may be conscious and suffering for as long as 15 seconds. If decapitation is necessary, the decapitated head needs to be immediately immersed in liquid nitrogen.
Kosher killing is considered humane but it is difficult to perform correctly, the knife needs to be incredibly sharp and both carotid arteries need to be severed (at least that is what I understand).
Shooting (or stabbing) from behind is also difficult. I have a piece saved somewhere on how to properly perform it it. Doing it humanely is certainly not as simple as stabbing at the base of the skull. Not to mention that where exactly to need to stab with vary based on the species.

When it comes to animals Bear Gryls is not the brightest Rolling Eyes

Ever seen him try to ride a 'wild' horse? It is a TV show.

Just because he does it on TV, does not mean he is doing it correctly or humanely.

I'm pretty sure if he was doing something wrong PETA would be on his ass already. Show's been on for several years.

Cool. This thread was a little depressing, anyway.

A lot of humane societies do not take strays as was mentioned before.

This is quite a heavy subject. What makes it heavier is that whoever hurt the animal will usually move on to a human at some point, so should be prosecuted so that step is stopped.

Good luck with the animals. It is not always easy.

Kitty Kat You live here in Iqaluit?

You have ample knowlage of the Iqaluit humane scociety however There are reports that they may be shutting down due to lack of funding and vollunteers

Everyone else Thank you all for your support in this The police have been made aware of the situation and thereason I did not use a knife or my shovel to kill it is because My shovel was at home I dont need it in the summer time and I hate knives as much as I hate guns It would have been too far to walk while carrying the puppy and The family wanted it to die in their yard so the police and the by-law could look for evidence They are aware that I put her down and they are aware of the method I used to do so and they know I wouldnt let it go on suffering the way it was Alot of the animals taken in are right now being shipped out to other shelters in Ottawa and Edmonton so that they dont have to be put down because we could be on the verge of loosing our shelter

Maybe one of you might come across an Iqaluit husky who is hoping for a new home to live in

Humans are the only species that would not only kill a supposedly species just for s**ts and giggles, but would rape, stab in the eye, take a screwdriver and brutalize the girls genitals and murder said girl, a member of their own species.

Any animal you could run into would NEVER... EVER... do this, even on its worst days... the supposed "LESSER" species know what they're doing.

Good night all...

Actually PETA would be way too busy having celebs posing for pictures while holding baby animals and they are so high up on themselves that they dont realise the harm they are doing to themselves and to the animals that they think "Look cute" When that Beetle guy did it with a seal pup he had no idea what kind of seal he was doing it with and Lepoard seals are not called lepords just for their spots They can and have benn known to attack humans and other predators to defend their pups That seal cub that Paul handles Was very likely abandonded by its own mother because he was covered in human stink instead of the scent that mommy uses to identify the pup with He probably starved to death or died of exposure My hope is that a natural predator like a Polar Bear or Orca got to him before he suffered because of that Beetle guy

Yeah, but those things are for self defense, not for sport or to just be a dick.

Polarbear dad: RAWWWRRRRR..... F**K WITH MY KID? *slash!*

Human Dad: huh huh huh.... check this out... Welcome to club baby seal, son! The most slamin' place in the Antarctic! *WHACK!*
You won't ever see the polar bear dad do that. Hunt for food, not to be cruel.

Sometimes if a Polarbear is hungry because there isnt enough food in the wild such as the case last winter because the sea ice was really late forming up They will wander into communities and prey on pets and sometimes children such was the case last year in other communities who also saw the really unusually warm winter
