Nicely said!Originally Posted By: middleofnowhere I am aware of laws that only allow you to kill someone else's animal if it is threatening you or your livestock. Evidently, where this took place, chasing wild game is not a "mortal" sin. There is nothing to indicate that the dog did anything else except chase a turkey.
This is a little like if I drop my wallet on your sidewalk by accident, it doesn't give you the right to keep it.
i would obviously not go shoot the guy, but he had no compassion for the fact our dog was missing. we were handing out flyers, & he was basically like "okay but im just gonna shoot your dog soo whatever." how would you feel if someone said that to you about a 5 month old puppy?Originally Posted By: selzerAnd Chels, no matter how much you love your dog, if somebody shoots your dog, you cannot shoot the person. You would go to jail for a very long time. And rightly so. If someone crashes into your car and you shoot them, your are going to prison. Property damage does not equal damage to people. Beyond that, a dogs live, however better dogs are than people, and no matter how scummy the person is, does not equal a person's life.
