    “A council report said this would improve animal welfare and reduce the stress animals experience in the pound.”

    The language is interesting; it’s hard to see that being dead is an improvement in the welfare of most animals. I’d think that killing an otherwise feedable/treatable/tameable/destressable/rehomable animal indicates a sudden decrease in its welfare rather than the converse.
