Every year thousands of animals come through the doors of animal shelters – and, because of the out-of-control pet population, many end up with a death sentence. But there is a political debate going on in Michigan and around the country concerning the most humane way to euthanize – through lethal injection or the gas chamber. Karen King is on a mission.

NILES -  It's beef jerky, but it looks like some form of chewing tobacco - and it got four students suspended at Ring Lardner Middle School in Niles on Wednesday. One of those four suspended students suspended had chewing tobacco in this beef jerky tin. But the other three actually had the beef jerky in it. "I was confused why I got in trouble for this," eighth-grader Brenton Harrell said. Teriyaki beef jerky. It doesn't scream “suspension.” "It's ground up beef jerky you can put it in your lip or eat it," Harrel said.
