because wolves are a pest, much like coyotes are a pest. rats are in the same category.

Default EDIT to my post #10 in this thread...........

I posted without reading the entire thread last night (Fri Dec 13th).......my bad, I did not know that MTSilvertip had expressed (post #2 of the 11th) some of the same thoughts that I ending up posting. I apologize for this over-sight.

It was my understanding that the shooter was on a F.S. road or within a short distance of the road. Thus my comment about violating a F.S. (and/or a F&G) regulation. I may be misinformed about where he was when he shot the dog, or whether or not the dog was on the road. If I am wrong about this.....I re-tract that portion of my post.

Considering this incident from "both sides"......IMHO there is equal blame on both parties.
It sure as hell is a "very sad" and "inexcusable way" to learn: #1 You have to be 100% sure that your target is, in fact, a game animal or varmint;#2: Common sense tells me you don't hunt in an area that is also being used by snow skiers and/or other recreationists (sp?). #3 You don't run dogs in the woods that look similliar to wolves. #4: And again, if you are recreating in an area that is open to big game hunting (or for that matter, hunting of any kind), you wear some form of blaze orange and have it also on your animals........These are my opinions and I think they stem from "common sense" and realizing that there are others (armed) in the woods that are not as educated, informed, experienced and "schooled in the ways of-the outdoors", as they should be!!!

Enough said.....I will now close my mind to this sad incident!.....................Griz. (0ld but still "with it"!)

It sounds like a whole buncha knuckleheads being forced to share the same territory. I see the same idiots running their dogs in our local Mountains. A lot of them are Coyote looking dogs. Rule #1 is you aren't supposed to let your dog off leash, mostly so they won't chase a Deer and get lost. Fools and their pets soon part.

Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.

(BTW, rats aren't in the same category as they are an introduced species)

Most of the dog problems could be solved if dog owners simply kept their pets on a leash or fenced in.

very true. I have both dogs and horses on my property. when hunting season began this year, I put a light orange blanket on each of my horses and kept the dogs near the home.

none got shot.
