State-Of-The-Art Stun Gun
A stun gun for livestock that has been used in Germany for years is now available in the U.S. and Canada. The Blitz captive bolt stun gun is the most powerful on-farm stunner available, according to Bertrand Dumont, owner of Cotran Corporation, which sells veterinarian supplies. Last fall his company became the North American distributor.
  The stun gun uses 9mm centerfire blank cartridges that come in different loads to humanely euthanize everything from small pigs to cattle. When fired the cartridge's high velocity pushes a rod into the animal's cranium for a quick and humane death.
  Blitz kits are affordable for livestock owners, veterinarians, packing plants and truckers who handle livestock.
