Minnesota Considers Regulating Euthanasia at Animal Shelters

Minnesota House Bill 1852 would prohibit the euthanasia of any companion animal in a public or private “animal shelter, humane society, society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, animal control facility, or pound” by the use of “carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, or other non-anesthetic gas.” A violation of this bill would be a misdemeanor.
