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 .
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.
This is the most ignorant post I’ve seen on FR all day.
Dogs are not mere property, they’re valued and love3d members of the family......and if this asshat had shot my dog, prison would have been the least of his worries.
Just curious - Have you ever had a dog you loved?
Ping to a fellow JRT owner with strong opinions. :)
IMHO this guy was waaay out of bounds. Nobody shoots my dog on my property. Talk to the owners, call the cops, whatever. Sounds like a nut.
By NH law when it is subjecting a dog to unwarranted and unnecessary cruelty, it is more than a fine.
If the man was threatened, why didn’t he go back into his house to protect himself? Why didn’t he call the police? Why did he follow the dog back to the owners house? The man abviously has anger issues. He is a ticking time bomb. God forbid anyone who accidentally cuts him off on road or looks at him cross eyed. He deserves the full penalty of the law.
