How many victims were attacked? There’s no indication of anyone getting attacked, if anyone was, then that should be reported. An excited dog is not a dog that attacks people. As screenname456 mentions that owner muzzled the dog, but before the dog got muzzled it probably had enough time to attack if that was the intension other than to bark around. Fishing with too many rods is a fishing violation, and should be investigated and charges pressed accordingly. These are two separate issues and should be handled as such. It sounds like cover-up. An officer makes a judgement based on information they receive; reality of it is often different from that. This case was a situation in which a paid government servant totally panicked and it could have been avoidable had the dog not been pre-sentenced for extermination. I am sorry for the dog owner who lost a companion, yet I hope he gets all the fishing violations he earned. I am happy for the conservation officer who upheld the fishing act; but he is not competent enough to handle a firearm in the wild if he’s exterminating dogs that care about their owners and raise awareness of their surrounding environment. This unpractical trigger happy officer shall be prosecuted and fired for his own safety.
