The Washington Post is reporting that a proposed Virginia Bill would make it difficult if not perhaps illegal for animal shelters to euthanize unwanted pets. PETA is apparently alleging that the bill is aimed at itself since it euthanises the majority of its foundlings. There is now apparently infighting among various shelters about the bill.
