My view is this - if it accomplishes nothing, don't do it! If you are using
this as a disposal method, don't do it. If you are using this to replenish
depleted natural populations, don't do it. If you can't bear the thought of
euthanasia, don't do it. I cannot imagine any scenario where it is desirable unless
the species is extinct and even then I would be hesitant.
