We the dog lovers of the UK want the Welsh Assembly to ban the practice of bolt-gunning or shooting dogs to death in order to dispose of them.  At present this practice is LEGAL!

Welsh puppy farmers or anyone who has a bolt gun licence are using this cruel method to dispose of hundreds of dogs a year.

These dogs have already spent their lives breeding in cages, have never been handled and are scared.  When they are too old to breed, sick or unsold as puppies, they are then hung by the scruff - whether a Cavalier or Cockapoo, whilst the handler presses a bolt gun to the head and pulls the trigger.

The bolt strikes the forehead with great force and immediately retracts. The subsequent concussion is responsible for the unconsciousness of the animal. The  can then either leave the animal to die from the projectile wound or a rod can be inserted into the hole to addle the brain.

These are domestic dogs, bred to sell their puppies to pet shops, traders, or homes around the UK.

This practice is not acceptable.  Please sign and share so we can get this bill passed NOW!!  I

In the last month alone over 100 dogs have been bolt gunned by one particular puppy farmer in Wales.

How can this still be legal.  How did this man just renew his breeding licence through the Welsh Council? 

Please, please sign and share.  

Thank you so much
