    I don't see why this guy wouldn't just put a ad on kijiji? Free to a good home. Unless they where aggressive or something like that. Dumping them in the open like that, come on man use your head. At least bury them out of sight.

    I have met and know many houndsman and alaskan sled dog breeders and racers that use to say they could not place these animals in a home for various reasons and put them down. But fortunately for these 2 particular breeds this mindset has quickly been changing in the last 15 or so years. I know of many people that have taken hounds as well as alaskan huskies and worked on socializing these animals to be pets or hobby working homes. Some kennels that exist today will only take reject working dogs and turn them into super star sled dogs. It's all about educating the ignorant and surrounding yourself will knowledgeable people that can assist you. I have personally placed a few working sled dogs in pet homes (free of charge)because they did not meet my expectations and could not be included in a breeding program.They turned out to be amazing pets and companions. By shooting healthy dogs and dumping them in a public place is stupidity at it's highest level.

    Given the nation-wide attention this story has received, I have no doubt that the person behind it will soon be located. If you keep or breed hounds in those numbers, your neighbours or peers know about it. It won't take long for 2+2 to be put together.

    When will we learn (whether this person is a hunter or not doesn't matter because people are assuming he is, therefore guilty by association if not fact). That

    stuff like this gives us all black eyes and the "Anti's" ammunition.
    Whether it's people posting ill advised ( Gorey, blood filled hero shots) on FB, or Cecils, or poaching Moose/deer, etc.

    Would "we" not be "irate" if rather dogs, these were Whitetails?
    There aren't to my knowledge laws against putting pets down oneself, there are laws about how to dispose of them.

    If we are going to talk the walk...and claim that we are responsible, get just as upset when someone breaks laws, etc, etc.
    Than we should walk the walk to.

    Aside from dumping animals to rot...All this is going to do is give the Antis fuel for their fires and ammunition.
    So many good posts. I was wanting to say that Mr Ben, but didn't have the courage. Thanks.

    Breeding and training beagles from 1956- 85 with my Dad , resulted in some dogs having to be culled. It was a part of life then. They weren't thrown in a ditch and left.

    We didn't have the options back then, as there are to day , to rehome a dog ; I think today every effort should be made to give the dog a life elsewhere.

    Sometimes though - I've had 2 JRT rescues that could not be safe with anyone else. One I had put down , the other is on a short line.

    Dad taught me too that "they should be treated with respect , even in death. " quote fisherman mccan

    Try to sell anything on kijiji and you get a lot of bums looking for something free. They flood your email. It's almost harder re homing a cull. I'm still trying cause. I'm not quick to pull the trigger but I do have discretion.

    Little story to put all this in perspective.A number of years ago I was assigned to work at the Brock Landfill site in Pickering trying to locate the chopped up remains of a transvestite escort who had a bad date and ended up dead.

    We worked there for 3 months shifting through tons of garbage and opening the bags.One day the grabber spun up a bunch of dead dogs,poodles,labs... all flying through the air,most still with their collars on.

    So these were just family pets that had been put down and because the vets/humane societies did not have the incinerator they had been dumped in the garbage.Out of sight out of mind.

    I don,t know what the families that once owned these pets were told about disposal,but I do not believe they thought their pet would end up in that last resting place.

    PS We never did find our body .

    In relation to the OP if some efforts were made to re home the dogs I,am good with the cull. But at least dispose of the poor dogs with some dignity and respect of the same kind the dogs probably displayed to their owner while alive.

    Welsh is 100 percent correct!! I found 5 dogs all shot several years ago on the edge of a well used trail grouse hunting...it was a mess and by all appearances made everyone an "Elmer Fudd" with every NON hunter using that access trail. Notice I didn't say anti hunter...I'm sure several people who where not antis became several that week before the City cleaned them up..due to complaints.

    When I read the article I had figured these dogs where shot by a land owner upset that these dogs were continually let out to run game across his land. I myself did not suspect this was done by the owner of the hounds.
    Hounds get shot in the States all the time due to trespassing, running deer and anti hunters, it's a big problem in the States.

    I read 4 pages of comments on here and everyone assumes these hounds were shot by the owner, it is possible that these dogs were shot by land owners or other territorial hunters, yes even in the head.

    Wow that is an eye opener. When my Lab goes hopefully a long time from now her body will be laid to rest by me on my property. I trust no one but me to do it with dignity...
