I think in the case when an animal is clearly suffering and has no chance of being helped, it is humane to “put it out of it’s misery.”

That doesn’t make it any easier to witness. *hugs*

I think it was the right thing to do, it was just suffering and could have taken hours to die had your husband left it alone. My husband would do the same thing, and I probably would get a little emotional about it too, but it’s less humane to let it just lay there and die slowly.

Your hubby did the right thing. No one likes putting an animal down, but it’s a far greater kindness to help its passing.

nutmeg5512:  My FI had to do this too and we were both so sad. We had a fledgling outside our house the fell out of its nest and was mortally injured. We waited and watched for a while but when it was clear it was just going to continue suffering, we put it out of its misery. It was so awful. :'(

Yes, your husband did the right thing. It sounds like that poor bird didn’t have much of a chance at recovery, so shortening any suffering was a good thing to do.

I had to watch as my home hatched chicks died last summer, one even died in my hands. It was heartbreaking and I felt so terrible for weeks, but I kept telling myself I did everything I could to make them better and it didn’t work.

I feel for you, and hope you feel better soon. xxx

Awww, poor thing.  Killing it was the right thing to do.  There’s no way that he could have recovered from a broken neck or have been able to survive long-term.  Things like this really upset me too, but I remind myself that the animal isn’t in pain anymore.

Thats horrible but it was for the best…

just yesterday my dog spotted an injured bird in the middle of the street but it didn’t look that bad so I kept it for the night (lots of cats here) and released it in the Morning. It probably died too- I’ll never know, but if it were obvious it wasn’t going to make it I would hope my DH would do the same (because I know I could never).
