Our vet said "in" city limits is Mir allowed
We buried 3 dogs, a cat & countless chickens, ducks etc.
The dogs were buried about 4 ft down, a "Evergreen" tree planted over dog. We have a Different species of evergreen planted for each dog.
At Xmas there is decorations on each tree.

Never had Any of the critters dug up by animals.

We do the Send off by burning although it can be tricky to do right. Special animals get a scented rose.

Well i know with hunting the mnr requests the bits unused to be left in the bush for predation....of course thats hunting and not a pet companion animal...

Years ago my Dad's cousin was charged with improper disposal of dead livestock for throwing 3 dead pigs into the bush along a deserted piece of road. Farmers used to routinely dispose of small dead stock in the manure pile; also not legal.

I have had many of my animals put to sleep by a vet, mostly dogs. Pretty much all went well, very smooth and " just went to sleep" up to the last one I had done and she wasn't mentally ready to go but physically her body had shut down. She was sedated to start and then when the euthenal was injected she fought it. Whether it burned when it went in or what I don't know but THAT made it almost impossible for me to handle. She was one of my top show dogs in her prime and my Best In Show girl. I still believe in a vets method only because I have not experienced seeing anyone shoot an animal and only because I have only experienced this panic once. I still prefer when they just shut their eyes, let out one gasp and go to sleep on their own. Thoughts are with you when you have to make this decision. Its not an easy one.

I had always taken my animals to the vet when their time had come and I did have a similar experience to Featherduster with a cat that reacted to "the needle" and had to be restrained and pinned down during what was supposed to be the peacefully going to sleep time. That stayed with me for quite a while. My last cat that had to be put down was almost 18 years old and had lived with me since her mom showed up with her in my yard...tiny little thing barely walking yet.
She was suddenly in very intense pain to the point she bit right through my finger when I tried to pick her up. I couldn't stand the thought of her being in that agony while I drove her to an emergency vet. Hubby's son shot her to get it done quickly. Honestly in that situation I had no choice but would consider avoiding the vet in future for the sake of the animal. The less stress for them the better.

I think that most people view death by gunshot as violent, messy, loud, frightening. It is none of those things, especially for the animal involved, which is the important thing.

That's too bad, considering those pigs and small dead stock are organic and food for other animals, not like old washing machines,windows, shoes and other such trash... like coffee cups, fast food containers, and filled green garbage bags.

When I had to put my horse down the vet told me I could compost it on the manure pile, I said no. Not a fan of that, I guess I would prefer not to know what is happening.

If done wrong, it will rot and stink to high heaven.
