(Great Falls Tribune)   Idiot Montana hunter manages to pump six rounds into Malamute that he thought was a wolf, even though the dog was wearing a collar and a light--and the dog's owner was screaming "Stop, stop" at hunter the whole time   (greatfallstribune.com) divider line 284

Well, if he hadn't shot it, all those wolves that are taking over the western states would have killed his darling dogs anyway. The only way to save domestic dogs is to shoot every wolf on sight, amirite? --legally, illegally, whatever. The wolf is the greatest threat to the American way of life since HITLER.

Montana? Maybe he had it on full auto and couldn't get off the trigger any quicker.

There's a reason I elk hunt with the same people every year. The number of drooling idiots walking around with "I need to shoot something!!!" hardons during hunting season is truly frightening.
 
2013-11-18 03:05:08 PM
That's exactly what a person disguising a Malamute as a wolf would say.

Not to be an ITG or anything, but if that had happened to my pet while I was out skiing, that "hunter" wouldn't have left the scene at all.

That's just wrong.  How do you mistake a dog for a wolf?  And unless you're a rancher protecting your livestock, why are you hunting wolves anyway?

I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

$19 for a license. $50 if you're out-of-state. Come and get 'em. Don't be fooled. I cannot state this strongly enough. Those wolves will crawl in your windows and rape your Chihuahua while you're sleeping, and then pee on your bed on the way out. We all live stark terror of wild dogs.

Reminds me of the time I was out hunting deer with my wife. I had he set up in a blind about 20 yards down the path from me. I heard two shots ring out and then my wife starts screaming " Get away from it! It's mine!" I take off down the path to see her pointing her rifle at some guy while still still screaming "Get away from it! It's mine!"
Then he said " Ok lady, just let me get my saddle off of it."

Malamutes are about as vicious as an elderly golden retriever.
 
2013-11-18 04:49:07 PM
The only thing worse than a hunter that's a bad shot, is one that can't correctly identify game.

This. I get that you could never prosecute every drunk moron who did something stupid during deer season but in this case someone's pet was killed a few feet from the owner, seems like it might warrant a little more attention.

I'm always terrified about my dogs getting outside, because people are stupid and I have a German Shepherd and a Shiloh Shepherd.  If you were a complete idiot, you'd think the Shiloh was some sort of huge worg or something.  Until he began licking you to death.

Livestock deaths due to wolves has increased with their population. There is a very heated argument over whether there are too many wolves. The too many wolves side of the argument won, so licensed "harvesting" re-started.

If you don't want you pet to succumb to injury, keep it on a leash.

"There are other people who use the woods besides hunters this time of year," Spence said.

They don't care. That guy is glad that you came by with your dogs so that he could kill something and make him feel like a man.

In town or on popular pedestrian paths I'd agree with you...but on a snowbound logging road in the woods? This is 100% the fault of the "hunter."

I can't believe how many people have asked if my dog is a wolf.

He wondered what would have happened if he had a child on a sled or if a bullet ricocheted.

Oddest "think of the children" I have ever seen.

Take a look at the wolf hunting to license ratio

625 wolves. 6000 licenses.

for my money, a bell is the best thing for a dog. lights and collars are all well and good, but they require the hunter get a good luck. yes, hunters are supposed to be sure of their target, but too often thats not the case. with a nice little bell, the dog will be heard long before it would even need to be seen.

He's the kind of "hunter" who not only can't tell a dog from a wolf at 20 yards, but needs several shots to kill it.

You could probably trick him into killing himself by telling him there was a wolf on his head.

Mouren: "No witnesses"

The owner told the guy to get lost, but didn't get any information like a name. So without any other witnesses there's nothing they can do. They don't know who the hunter is to go talk to him, let alone really investigate.

A hunter who shoots at something without identifying it first doesn't need to be hunting.

That's the owners story.

I am sure the hunter's story, if they could find him (the guy told him to go away) would be something like "I was huntin' and what I thought was a wolf came running right at me. After I kilt it, I saw that it was a dog. Like 10 minutes later his owner comes up the trail..."

When I lived in NoVa, my dog was always on a leash. When I am hiking a trail in Montana, the idea sounds ludicrous (because it is). I take two of my dogs on runs almost every day. The trail is full of people with dogs not on leashes.

The hunter is at fault here.

Sheep mostly, not cattle.

The hunter should definitely be charged. First of all, you have possibly animal cruelty, and definite destruction of property. After that, if the owner was close enough to the dog to scream at you while you shot it, you should have reckless endangerment. Finally, there are probably hunting violations for not properly identifying a target before shooting.

Probably the issue here is that nobody knows who the hunter is. Hopefully wolf hunts in Montana are done with tags and zones - that would give a small number of suspects, unless the guy was straight-up poaching.

I don't know. It seems impossible. I mean, really. You'd have to be all sorts of dumb.

He identified it as a wolf.  He said so himself!
