From the story: "It costs $100 to capture, house, and eventually euthanize an adoptable animal," Raab said. "The recidivism of the inmates, too. They don't come back to prison once they've been through one of these programs, and housing an inmate is like $40,000 to $45,000 a year."
Maybe we should model our prison system after the animal shelter system and euthanize some inmates. Look at the cost savings.
