Sigh.  It's that old saying:  Always released with minor injuries.  Never released on conditions.

The man was arrested and later released on conditions.
The victim was taken to hospital and released with minor injuries.

This is Canada. Using a handgun outside of a range is illegal and grounds alone for them to seize all of his other guns. So multiple firearms charges isn't the same thing as the guy was hoarding illegal guns but in classic CBC style they like to make it seem like he was a career criminal.

FTA:  The dog is alive and was seized by animal control.

So, not quite the last laugh - that would belong to the RSPCA.

Euthanize? So that's what those cops did to Andre Maurice Hill.

Shooting your dog is one way to handle the issue of it biting people. Finding a trainer to train the dog not to bite people is another option - and then you don't have to kill a dog.

But I guess I doubt the kind of person who'd recklessly shoot into a mobile home and injure someone while trying to shoot the dog is the kind of person with the brainpower to figure that equation out.

Good thing animal control sized the doggo so they can do what this moran could not.

All those guns and he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

Friendly reminder that the only people a gun owner's arsenal is ever likely to harm are either the gun owner himself or his family and friends. If the gun owner has anything worth stealing, a burglar will wait until the house is unoccupied to make his move.

He hit the side of an RV, arguably smaller than a barn.

"A subsequent search of the home resulted in the seizure of 29 long guns and nine handguns, according to police"

Growing up we had a German Shepard that was overly protective of us and, more relevantly, our yard.  Karla the dog bit a neighbor's kid that cut across or yard.  We got a warning.  Then she bit a friend of my sister's and the family of the first bit kid heard about it and reported it.  Our legal choices were put it down or get rid of it.

The old man told us she went to Houston and became a police dog.  8 year old me believed it and somewhere during my teen years I realized it was a lie.  Fast forward 30+ years and after my dad passed I found a letter from Houston LEO rejecting the dog - I was almost shocked he had actually tried, then again he loved that dog.

I also found the vet bill for putting her down.

/sniff, she was a great dog as long as you were family

Hey! Barns don't like being called broads.
 
2021-01-22 2:22:23 PM  
That's actually a good amount of guns. By Canadian standards 3 is a massive arsenal, this guy had like 30.

In HS my buddies dog found and ate a whole bag of weed and basically became brain dead. Wouldnt really move, wouldnt bark. Sad.
So he took him out to the country and shot him in the back of the head with a .45.

Hey, I couldnt have done it but I dont see how its worse than a vet doing it.

That cover really isn't funny, dog did end up being killed

In early 1976, Cheeseface was shot on the farm where he lived with his owner, Jimmy De Pierro, in East Charleston, Vermont by an unnamed hunter. As of 2020, the identity and motivation of the assailant remain unknown[5][6] although the owners of Cheeseface named David Bradshaw in a lawsuit in 1976.[1]

Dogs rarely get 2nd chances much less get to bit a few and get anger management sessions.

If done properly, shooting a dangerous/suffering animal is safe and effective.  This individual did not do things properly and has to suffer the consequences.

When I got my dog he was completely unruly and undisciplined, and had a biting problem. Almost took a chunk out of me a couple times after I brought him home and wouldn't let him do something he wanted to do. So I enrolled in dog training classes with him, and our trainer helped me teach it out of him. Had him for 11 years now, and he's never bitten a single person since or even tried. He's a 90+ lb. GSD/black Lab mix with all the GSD guarding and herding instincts. He still patrols our yard, the dog park, our friends houses, and anywhere he goes - guarding whatever space he's in diligently... but no attempts to bite. He just barks at them if he's concerned, until I let him know that person is good to go or they greet him with his name.

Should have taken him to an expert after the first incident, before Johnny Law forced your dad's hand. Killing a dog which hasn't been taught to bite isn't the only option. You can also teach them not to bite. Experts exist to help with this.

I've had cats for going on 60 years now.  I know when their failing, and I know it costs $500 or so for a vet to put them down vs $0.10 for a .22LR (and I know, ammo prices have skyrocketed in the past few years).

Ya know, I can't get myself to do it.  I know fluffy is in distress at 18 y/o, but I still can't take her out to the back 40 and shoot her.  I just can't.

I felt so bad about paying about $500 to kill the cat I'd known for 15 years, since he was a kitten.  It was hard to sleep.  Had I not had that last weekend of trying to feed him his favorite food, including taking shrimp out of the freezer, defrosting it, and cooking it; only to have him sniff at it and walk away (after I carried him to it), I don't know what I would have done.  Turned out he had congestive heart failure, would die within a week no matter what I did.

I felt bad that I didn't hold him in my lap for those last few hours, thinking he was just sick and the vet would let me buy pills to fix him.  Instead, he weezed on the air conditioner while I was "stupid cat, I've given you the food you love.  Dafuq?".

And I guess 4.5 years later I'm still not over it.  I've got a cat purring in my lap now, but I still think of Fricky.
