The bill now heads to the state House for approval.
LANSING, MI -- A bill working its way through the Michigan Senate would ban the use of gas chambers to euthanize cats or dogs. Sponsoring state Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, said that animal control shelters in some Michigan counties use gas when it is necessary to euthanize a dog or cat despite the availability of lethal injection.
