” He claimed it was self-defense, that the dog had come to his yard and wouldn’t stop barking, so he chased the dog to the owner’s home and pulled out his gun, and shot the dog in the head “
This idjit should suffer a similar fate .
Possible prison for shooting an animal? At most, it is a fine for damaging somebody’s property. In this case, the property was harassing the guy, so he took care of the business. A bit excessive in my book, however. So, a fine is good in this case.
Dogs bark . Call the owner before shooting .
“Dogs bark . Call the owner before shooting .”
Dogs bark... and bite, as well. So, take care of the potential threat, then call the owner to pick up the mess.
This time, based on the description, the guy was a bit too anxious to get rid of the dog. The guy should have shot the dog when it was on his property.
Before anyone flames me, I do love dogs of all kinds.
“I do love dogs of all kinds.”
Yum, stir or deep fried?
Quick, have him become a cop. Make it all well and good!!!
I’m from the South. Deep fried is preferable, where you can’t tell if it’s dog or an oyster.
A lot of towns in NH have leash laws...is Bristol one of them? The animal should have been on a leash if he was off the owner’s property...following it then shooting it was out of bounds, but the dog shouldn’t have been loose in the first place.
Call the owner . Guy’s like this arse give the left more ammo for taking our guns .

With property (dog) comes responsibility (leash). An unleashed dog is a hazard to anyone. A barking mad dog needs to be put down.
There a couple of towns in NH that consider a dog ‘leashed’ if it is opn the owner’s property ‘under the owner’s command’...WTF? Yeah...’under the owner’s control’ until the dog sees a cat...’leash’ means ‘leash’ where I come from...
“like this arse give the left more ammo for taking our guns .”
The left does not need more “ammo” to disarm the population. They are motivated enough A:READY by the thought of docile and willing population that is unwilling to use their guns when necessary.
At least this guy used his gun to defend himself/family/property from an out of control dog. If everybody uses their guns responsibly and frequently, nobody would be daring to take away guns.
“A right not exercised is a right lost.”
If his life had been threatened or even minimally in danger, it might have been justified, (Detective Sgt. Timothy) Woodworth said. If this was a 100-pound Rottweiler, you might be able to understand it. But this was a 50-55 pound dog. He could have taken any number of other actions.
Oh, the irony.....
Apparently YOUR property was violating Mr. Nelson's private property...I see the dog owners are from 'out of state'. This is getting to be a real problem for old-time NH residents who have their private property rights violated on a daily basis. NY'ers and Massh*les routinely trespass to go berry picking, camping, shoot off fireworks, or whatever without giving any thought to the fact that they might be on someone's property. There is a simmering anger building...
Seriously. I saw all kinds of quotes like that that Freepers love to battle over.
The dog could not have been THAT viscious if he chased it out of the yard .
