|Not saying It's right, but that is why I have 6' fence around my property. Lesson learned. Of they were kids, you'd think, "how horrible". But you would question why kids were wandering off unsupervised. Any who lives in an area that can be hunted knows not to let their animals wander. Stupidity on both sides! Hunter was probably pissed his deer were getting spooked and the owner was negligent. Buy a fricken fence.|

Been there. 12 years ago we let our Rottie and Rat Terrier out for a potty break. Dogs never left the property, but did not necessarily stay close to the house (I own 25 acres) The terrier returned, the Rottie did not. This was NOT during gun season for deer. 2 weeks later, our neighbor asked if it was OK if hunting took them across our property. We allowed this as they are good friends, and very respectful of our property. While hunting, they came across Annie's body. She had been shot thru the spine. Shooter had removed her collar (with her tags) so she could not be ID'd, but not enough time had passed and weather was too cold for body to rot into nothing. She was shot ON OUR PROPERTY, by someone who was obiviously poaching. She was in the woods but no where near the property line. The injury would have meant instant paralysis (if not death) as the spine was severed. We brought her out of the woods and gave her a proper burial.

|Exactly. Buy a fence. Keeps things in and out.|

|In many states, NY included a dog chasing deer is fair game to be shot. Many hunters are idiots and shoot farmers cows and goats every deer season along with dogs. It is very a very tragic and sad story for the dog and owner. I agree with Chaz and wouldn't let my dogs out anywhere that wasn't fenced if they were unsupervised.|

I have a little half acre woods right up against my house that my neighbor owns. My dogs are never out of the kennels unless I or my wife are out also. Just as dawn breaks one morning I hear 3 loud shot gun shots. My bedroom window is 80 feet from the woods so it sounds as if there in bed with me. Long story short, I thru a 30 clip in my AR and unloaded it in a couple tree,s in the woods off my back porch I never heard so much screaming and hollering in my life. I latter got a call from the land owner appoligizing for the 2 who were there. Now the land owner has several "No Hunting" sign,s on that woods.
If my dogs had been running around in the woods as they do when I,m out and the idiots would of shot them... I,d of burned down the woods with the hunters in it.
I,m a avid hunter and gun owner.

|Wow I did not know that in NY this law was as such. We have a fence around our property, yet many people use the electric fencing in our area. As we know these electric fences can malfunction allowing the dog to roam. I agree a fence is the best preventitive, yet it is disheartning to know that there are such irresponsible individual hunters that would not hunt properly, as to only kill and aim at the game they are out to hunt. Hunting is a sport as is Schutzhund, and there is proper ettiquette and rules in every sport. I am glad everyone agrees this is an outrage and a sad situation.|

|lol Bob, that sounds like something I'd do in that situation.|

I know too many good responsible hunters to let some idiot,s get away with that.

|Wouldn't call them real hunters, more like city slicker pieces of crap!|

|Would have loved to been there Bob! We each have our ways of handling a situation but what some are forgetting is you have to be preventive/proactive NOT reactive. Reactive is too late. You can't always say the other person should have done this or that. Times have changed and I'm not even sure if it's about respect.|
I live on a farm with multiple hunters using the surrounding fields/farms for hunting. deer season recently, bow season still in effect and goose season starting Saturday.My yard isn't fenced and the back runs into the forest. My service dog and my male I can trust 110%, the Czech female alot better than when she was a pup but not 100% will go on a leash from door to yard to kennel unless I am right there. The 16 month old stays close. I talked to the hunters, (pretty much the same people) when I first moved in and each season (one, to know who they are, their faces, their vehicles and plates) just to make them aware there are four dogs BUT every action, every situation or possible situation rests on me and what I do and don't do.

|If my dogs where ever shot like that there would be "stray" rounds in that direction going! No tolerance for souless pieces of crap!|

|A couple years ago some dirt bag shot a neighbors GSD right inside it's kennel from the woods next door. Definately not accidental. The first shot, maybe; the second......? Give me a break. There are a lot of wackos out there that'll shoot at anything, when I was a teenager my neighbors horses were clipped more than once. And I hate to find deer carcasses in the woods, just the head & 1 hind leg sawed off. Totally wasteful, & illegal. **sigh** jackie harris|
