Link is working now.

Great article. Good use of the weapon. Perhaps they are "necessary" after all. That dog looked terrifying.

If that were my dog the asshat would be wearing that AR. I'm really starting to like dogs a lot more than people lately.

The dog's owners admit the dog was not under their control, was out of their sight and was found near the neighbor's rabbits. The police say the shooting was justified, as it would have been in many states.

This is why a responsible dog owner keeps the dogs under control.

Hate to see an animal die that way but you're right.

No, he was a responsible gun owner. Gotta protect those rabbits. They might have a heart attack!

Never would have believed it but it does seem that rabbits are prone to heart attacks.

FWIW, I feel bad for the dog. It wasn't the dog's fault, it was the owner's fault. Sadly, it's the dog that suffers.

I developed my attitude re: uncontrolled dogs after the neighbors' 3 out-of-control dogs repeatedly chased after me, my wife and my handicapped son on our property, as well as anybody who walked down the street. Did research on the state's Dog Law and found anyone was allowed to shoot a dog that attacked a person or domestic animal. I also learned that any physical contact capable of causing injury initiated by the dog meets the legal definition of an attack. Just jumping up on an invalid is enough. Neighbors' dogs came very close to being shot.

So are older couples when their beloved family pet is shot.

My favorite breed. Justified, maybe but why put an animal down when a pellet rifle would chase him a way. The dog is an instinctive hunter. Too bad

Maybe NH's snow has already melted, but if the dog was running around the cage, wouldn't there be tracks still? I have tons of tracks in my yard still from my dog.

Seems like this is more a story of a vindictive irresponsible gun owner, shooting a dog with an unnecessary weapon for no reason other than to piss off his neighbors.

Good thing he was an excop. Lots of protection for guys like that.

If that pup was found on the ground next to the rabbit cage he/she probably didn't suffer much at all. Organ shots on dogs are a hell of a lot harder than on a deer.

Hampstead is pretty far south but there should still be snow.

You never had a dog get out of your yard or out of your control.

Ex-cops with a vendetta apparently.

Agree and agree.. I love most animals specially dogs... I consider them essential in raising kids for example, but in this particular case, if forced to, I would side with the shooter.
The dog owners should have had control or supervision over their pet.
Do not get me wrong, I think the shooter is an A$$hole. probably tons of other options more effective, efficient and readily available than grabbing your AR and shooting the damn thing....
Personal responsibility. Period.
