Cat survives 2 euthanasia attempts at Utah shelter

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) - A stray cat has survived two
attempts by a Utah shelter to put her down.
Andrea the cat had not been adopted for 30 days, so officials at
a West Valley City shelter put her in a gas chamber in the first
attempt to euthanize her in October. She survived, so they gassed
her again.
Shelter officials presumed she was dead when they put her in a
plastic bag in a cooler. She was later found alive.
Andrea has since been adopted. But her case has led animal
shelter volunteers to try to change the euthanasia procedure to
lethal injection.
Volunteers are expected to argue for the change at a city
council meeting Tuesday night.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports ( ) that
shelter officials aren't sure why the gassing failed.
