    Great point. The collars were taken as trophies of the kill. Either of my three likely suspect groups would have done something similar. :fred:

    People that kill animals for no reason should be shot for no apparent reason.

    Underground invisible fencing for 40 acres? The one I used could only cover an acre or so. (and my younger lab would leap through it anyway. He was hard headed.

    Maybe.

    Also they could have been taken so that whoever found their bodies wouldn't know who to contact.

    Whether to cause more mischief, or a trophy, or to deny the owner either peace of mind and/or knowledge that his security is compromised.

    Lots of unknowns, but I personally would up my awareness for sure. That would include speaking with all of my neighbors, the postman, local LEOs regarding suspicion persons,and the local veterinarian to see if other dog's had been recently shot.

    I'd go with (a) angry neighbor because the dogs have been barking, chasing animals, etc., or (b) teenage psycho, future serial killer killing them because he wanted to.

    Too bad the collars didn't have gps tracker coins on them.

    For all the obvious reasons and the unknowns, an event of this type would have me on VERY high alert for the foreseeable future.

    Alarm and camera system installed, reports to police, gun always at the ready, etc....

    I don't get the connection. Is there some news story that goes with this?

    I once saw an experiment where someone put a small fake turtle in the middle of the road where it would pass between your tires to see what people would do. The MAJORITY of people that drove by would slowly maneuver thier car and purposely run over the turtle. People are who they really are when they think nobody else is around.

    The reference is DJT is a trophy hunter and has hunted endangered species.

    I hope he has notified the authorities about this situation and gotten a good set of security cameras installed the next day.
    More than anything I I hope the scum that shot his dogs gets justice served pronto.

    Seems some kind of anti-Trumper pipe dream to associate DJT Jr's legal game hunting experience with illegal dog shooting, unless there is some legit news story about illegal hunting.

    Even hunting "endangered species" is a misleading characterization, when it done legally in a way that actually helps the species.

    Sounds like there is no connection between DJT jr and dog shooting at all.

    Heck, most of GT "trophy hunts" when we get the chance.

    Just curious; any reason a breed was never mentioned? It shouldn't matter in this type of case, but it does to most people. I'd expect a much different reaction from most people if they were Chihuahuas or Toy Poodles, or even Labs/Setters, vs. something like a Rottweiler/GSD or larger Bulldog/Mastiff mix of some type. Also strange that you called them pups; most dogs at a year old wouldn't be called pups (short for puppies) anymore, they should be nearly adult-size by then (but maybe this is just a regional/local/personal slang term for younger dogs?).

    Does anyone run cattle or ride horses on this BLM land?
    Any cow/horse/hiking trails along, or that ever get close to, the fence-line?

    You asked, I told you.

    Personally I think a minority of members here hunt. They are too quick to call people Fudds and too many city folk. Just look at the inactivity in the hunting sub-forum.

    I have 7 dogs ranging in age 7 years old to a puppy I kept from a breeding . He is 14 months old now and I still call him the puppy . He still acts like a puppy to me , but he is starting to stand up to the older dogs now and cocking his leg . My dogs are beagles . I use them for rabbit hunting and pleasure running after the season . My dogs are run all year long but on the hottest days , a few times every week . They love running a rabbit and I love watching and listening to them .
