Animal shelter blasted for euthanization by gunshot

(KOKI-TV) A local animal shelter is getting a lot of attention after Bristow residents discovered dogs there are being euthanized by gunshot.

Because of the size of the city, Bristow is legally allowed to euthanize however officials see fit, but state law does not clarify what is humane.

The mayor confirmed that three dogs, including a pit bull, were put down by gunshot in the last week.

Oklahoma law allows municipalities under 10,000 people to use any humane method to put animals down, but it does not define “humane.”
