"It started as a pig slaughter and ended with a man getting shot in the face by his older brother."
Table 2: Considerations for Specific Euthanasia Methods for Swine
Risk to Human Safety: High
...When euthanizing a pig by gunshot, extra care must be taken to ensure human safety. The size of the gun and ammunition should be matched to the size of the pig to ensure the effectiveness of the technique with one shot and for human safety. The user of the weapon should be trained in firearm safety and understand the potential for ricochet. Ideally, the pig should be outdoors, on soil where the danger of a bullet ricocheting is reduced... Restraint may be necessary and onlookers or assistants should always stand behind the person delivering the shot.
