RSPCA Captive Bolt

RSPCA - the full horror of how the ten GSD's finally ended their days

In its ‘RSPCA policies on animal welfare’, it states under its Objects of the RSPCA that ‘The charitable objects of the RSPCA are to promote kindness and to prevent or suppress cruelty to animals

This is a message on the Many Tears Petition Signature 6482:
I have been a serving Police officer where bolt guns used to be used at the scene of accidents etc by Police. I have seen a dog having to be shot 4 times before it died with one of these monstrous things. The Police no longer use them as they are deemed CRUEL. So why the hell does the RSPCA who apparently want to stop cruelty still use these barbaric things. Simple- cost, it is cheaper to shoot a bolt in the dogs head than to euthanise them as a vet would. Seems to me the RSPCA only treat animals nicely if Rolf Harris is there and it is on the TV. Disgraceful.

In June this year, the RSPCA slaughtered 10 pet GSD's after an owner died. The RSPCA have issued a number of statements and have admitted to using a captive bolt gun. This full story and RSPCA statements are already featured.

What they have never admitted to is how those dogs finally died.

We now know that each of the dogs was systematically dragged out of the house using a grasper then each dog was first shot through the head with a captive bolt gun at least once and then pithed with a metal rod (we believe a screwdriver). Pithing is a legal requirement after the use of captive bolt gun.

The RSPCA do not want the public to know they did this as they know the public would be disgusted and would probably not wish to support an animal welfare charity that killed dogs in such a cruel and barbaric way.

We want to show you how these poor dogs finally died. We apologise but we feel people should know that the UK's biggest animal welfare charity considers this a humane way to kill someone's pet dogs.

A captive bolt makes a hole through the dog's skull. If the shot isn't accurate ie if the dog struggles, a few more shots may be required.

A metal rod (screwdriver) is then shoved through the hole again and again and screwed around to mash the dog's brain up. This then causes the dogs to have violent fitting movements while they are dying. This is by all accounts very messy and smelly with lots of blood, urine and faeces expelled from the body. THE RSPCA SAY THIS IS HUMANE!!!


The RSPCA’s vision is, ‘To work for a world in which all humans respect and live in harmony with all other members of the animal kingdom

Under its Mission Statement, the RSPCA declares ‘The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering.’

And under their General Principles, the RSPCA states ‘The general principles on which the RSPCA operates, derived from extensive scientific evidence, is based on the fact that vertebrates and some invertebrates are sentient, and can feel pain and distress.’

What happened to all those honourable and admirable objects, visions, statements and principles when RSPCA inspectors arrived at an address in South Wales and proceeded to slaughter ten German Shepherd dogs with a captive bolt?


World Society for Protection Of Animals says:

'Captive bolts are not used for euthanasia of dogs in WSPA projects, and not listed as an acceptable method for euthanasia in the WSPA guidance (on the International Companion Animal Management'

Sign the petitions, stop the use of the captive bolt for killing dogs and cats.

Is this how people want their donated money spent?

Please don't let them get away with this atrocity!!
