Blitz-Kerner Captive Bolt Stunner Slaughter Device Livestock Euthanasia Kit
Captive Bolt Slaughter Kit Complete
A captive bolt device is a humane way to slaughter animals ranging from small pigs to a bull. A captive retracting ‘bolt’ is fired into the head, instead of a bullet. Different strength cartridges are used for different sized animals (see list below). It is imperative that the correct charge is used for the animal being destroyed. The shot is discharged by pressure on the trigger mechanism. The correct point for entry of the bolt is between and slightly above the eyes. A cleaning kit is included.

Important Notice: Serious penalties apply for dealing with animals inhumanely. If in doubt about use of this device, discuss with your veterinarian. Death should be finally ascertained by checking there is no heartbeat, no breathing and no blink reflex. Be aware that for heavy bulls and horses, this is a stunning device only. Use must be followed by pithing to assure death. (If in doubt consult you veterinarian.)
