More Dogs shot

In my December 1 post, I talked about a string of dogs that had been shot in Maine and the hunters said they thought the dogs were really coyotes. Well, it happened again. In York over the long weekend, another dog was shot.

So, I have to ask. Is this the newest CYA maneuver that hunters think will get them off when they shoot something they were not supposed to? I can see laying some blame on the owners of the last group of dogs, since everyone in the State should know that during deer season, idiots with guns are in the woods and the best and safest way to keep your pet safe is to know where they are and put some blaze orange on them. But, what about the end of December?

Is this the new go-to when you shoot something you are not supposed to? Sorry, I was sighting in my rifle and thought I saw a coyote. I didn’t realize it was a monster buck. At what point do we need to crack down on the people who are being so careless and shooting dogs?
