STOP using injured animals for target practice!!!

There are so many other more humane alternatives to "putting an animal out of its misery" than to shoot them. Injured animals who cannot flee are being taken to a target range to be disposed of. Think about if your animal got lost and was injured. Would you want them being traumatized by trying to flee gunshots and seeing other animals die? This is beyond cruel and our companion animals deserve better. Surely local veterinarians would rather help with euthanasia than allow this to happen. Merced Police and local animal groups MUST work together on this. Please sign and share this petition to send your message about this disgusting and barbaric practice.

      It is important to me that I do not live in a society where people with pathological traits have power and discretion over others. Anyone who would shoot an animal for target practice is suffering from a form of mental pathology.

      This is completely barbaric. Whoever partakes in this clearly doesn't have a soul. Let alone a heart.
