CUSHING — Cushing has received a $2,000 grant to change the method it uses to euthanize animals at the city’s animal shelter.

The city now uses a gas chamber to euthanize animals, but the grant from the state chapter of the U.S. Humane Society will allow it to transition to an injection method.

A local newspaper reports that the grant will cover training and other costs for employees to become qualified in the method.

Legislation pending in the Oklahoma Legislature would end animal gas chambers in the state. The Humane Society says five other chambers are operating in the state.
