 I thought Sean Pywell was most eloquent on the subject.  Clearly, on going
studies are essential to monitor any aspect of the environment.  The simple
issue is when does the return of hard fact fall below a level which is
acceptable, particular if significant suffering (mortality?) is involved. 
Swift decapitation may not really be that inhumane compared with say rodent
poison/traps which seem to be perfectly acceptable to society ay large.
