    Re: Feeder Euthanasia the Easy Way, and Humane too...

    Oh, wow. Good thing I found out about this first. I was just about to buy 25 lbs. Another way to do this is using liquid CO2 pretty much the same way. Has anyone ever done this before? I think you just put the CO2 in a container like the dry ice and it works the same way. Well, this probably has to be the same temp. as dry ice wouldn't you think? Maybe I'll just stick with the gas tanks even though they are much more expensive than dry ice i think.

    Quite the opposite is, in fact, true. He probably added TOO MUCH water, which increased the CO2 levels too quickly. Doing this completely negates the humane qualities of this method.

    The idea is to slowly increase the levels of CO2 so it gradually reaches a point where its an anesthetic/depressant, and after the animal is asleep, deadly levels are reached and the animal is dispatched without any pain or awareness of whats going on.

    Ok you think that's great...you can just chip off alittle peice and use it today, and save the rest for later. Doesn't work that way...you need a freezer that is cold enough to keep the dry ice from turning into a gas. Our regular freezers will keep an 8 pound block for a few days, at most...
    For you yeah, but it works great if you have access to it in small quantities. The Kroger I bought it from let me choose the amount I wanted. I went with about 3 lbs, just to be sure I had enough.

    Just be careful with the gas tanks and delivery of the gas. Remember the idea here is to increase the concentration of CO2 slowly.

    I'm going to stick with the paint ball CO2 canisters. Someone told me about them and that they work good like that. I'm decided not to buy a big tank. I think the little paintball tanks will work good, do you think so?

    do the gases escape with the cooler open or do you close the cooler when you do this?

    i have two questions about using this method. first when the process is done is the ice that you put in there gone? and if it is not what do you do with the left over ice?
