Heartbreaking story of a Basset Hound

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I saw this on the news last night. http://wcco.com/pets/basset.hound.shot.2.863858.html It happened right in my local area, and I just can't believe there could be such complete idiots in the world that would do something this cruel. Please send lots of that the police department will find and file charges against the person(s) responsible.

That is so unbelievably rotten. I hope they nail whoever did it.

Having lived near hounds before, it probably was because of her barking and howling. They should suspect someone nearby, especially since the person got away quickly without being seen.

Ohhh...I didn't open this thread for a few days because I knew I would get upset. I can't believe someone shot a basset hound! At least the poor girl found love and a good home.

Are they sure it wasn't hunters just shooting at anything that moved?

A somewhat silly suggestion. The article suggest they have neighbors, thus making the area at least somewhat if not completely residential (from a legal point of view).

Though, the article never mentioned whether they ever let her run loose. That could have been another way they made someone mad enough to do this.

I searched for an update on this story but couldn't find one. I agree with strange_wings, the family lives in a townhouse community, so it is very likely the person who shot the poor dog is one of their close neighbors. I know Basset Hounds make a baying sound that could get really annoying to some people, but that is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for killing Amara!!!!!
