Gary needs to eat crickets, Gary will eat crickets. If you let him loose will he still eat crickets? Of course. You have taken responsibility to raise Gary so just lump the fact that you have to raise and feed him crickets.
You reckon it's better to dump the responsibility on somebody else (sell him)? Dump the responsibility on Gary (release him)? Or take on the responsibility and deal with it in the most effective manner in which you can (keep him but be aware of the suffering being caused)?
This is samsara, samsara is suffering. You get rid of Gary today and tommorow you will have the other one hundred thousand other Garys to deal with anyway.

Say some mantras and make aspirations.
