If they are really dying, I would rather force feed than kill them purposely. Get them to a vet and have the inspected as well. Have him show you how to force feed. IMHO this is the best option. It might stress out the little snakes...but I still feel that it is better to at least do a last ditch tactic than to just kill them. But I feel the most humane way would be to have a vet put them to sleep. Freezing, IMO, is not a very humane way. Andy
