Unfortunately, I've seen that happen far too often even with animals in this 
day and age.  I sure hope the owners in those cases got lots of warm fuzzies, 
because the animals sure didn't.  Yes, when my end comes, I would gladly 
trade places with the beloved old horse on the ranch of any kind and caring 
old-style rancher who can accurately aim his gun.  I wouldn't mind the 
captive bolt route, but I doubt that my carcass will have much value, so it 
likely isn't worth making the effort--more old ranchers have guns than have 
captive bolts.
