It’s a shame that this family lost their dog. I hope the hunter does the decent thing and gets them a new one.
How could anyone mistake a husky for a coyote from fifteen feet away (maximum)?
“How could anyone mistake a husky for a coyote from fifteen feet away?”
Even I know the difference between a husky and a coyote (and I live in an urban area). Just my opinion, but the whole “I thought it was a coyote going to attack me” story is something the shooter came up with later. I have the strong feeling that he heard a noise and just shot. If a child or an adult had been in the woods, he would have shot as well.
