Federal law, as well as New York state law, prohibits kennel operators (animal shelters) from using euthanasia or killing animals with exhaust fumes.
However, David Yoder, a dog breeder at his Black Diamond Acres kennel confessed to gassing 93 dogs when he found out the dogs needed medical treatment for brucellosis. He sealed the dogs into boxes- the dogs died in the very same boxes they were born in.
According to the PETA files, "Yoder has turned in his kennel license and is now under investigation by the USDA and the local sheriff's department. He faces fines of up to $10,000 for every violation of the Animal Welfare Act."
This is just another astounding reason to only adopt animals and never to buy animals from pet stores, which buy animals from puppy mills such as the one in this case.
