"BAN THE BOLT" ABOLISH THE USE OF THE CAPTIVE BOLT GUN TO DESTROY DOGS IN CHRISTCHURCH.

"The city council has changed its killing methods over the years, from shooting dogs earmarked for euthanasia, to taking them to the vet for a lethal injection, to firing a pin into their brains with a "humane gun", commonly known as a captive bolt."
This method has been described as "archaic" and has come under fire from the New Zealand Institute of Animal Management. Most councils in the country use lethal injection to kill dogs. "The lethal injection is "far more humane" than the captive bolt because the captive bolt has more room for operator error."
Destruction of dogs should only be performed by use of intravenous euthanasia, administered by qualified veterinary surgeons.
