    Default Ontario wild boar hunt gone bad

    The farmer thought he was doing a good deed. Not!

    http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...avan-1.4422727

    "Reached by CBC News, Laplante said shooting the animals was an honest mistake. He said another hunter had spotted what were thought to be wild boars in the area about a week earlier."

    I wonder why the OPP didn't strip these guys of their guns...they admitted they shot someone's pet without cause on private property. Hope the MNR lays charges.

    CTV reported that a gun was confiscated.

    They asked for and received permission to hunt and said specifically what they were hunting. Even though it was mistakenly given by the owner,then,as an after thought,attempts to stop the hunters before it was too late,failed. Notwithstanding the fact that the hunter(s) couldn't tell the difference between domestic pigs and Wild Boars (complete fumbduckery on a grand scale ) and as long as they had small game licenses and were using proper equipment for the area they were hunting,I doubt they can be charged with anything.
    This really,really burns my a**. Guaran-damn-teed no land owner in the entire township will grant hunting permission to anyone to hunt for anything once this story gets around. Now,nobody needs to wonder why,either.
    How come there's a handicap parking space in front of the liquor store?

    Thatís not what I read.....the guy called and left a voice message asking for permission. He didnít get permission. The owner tried to contact him to deny permission and couldnít get hold of him......he went anyway !! At least thatís what I read and understood from the article.....sounds like a trespass to hunt charge at the very least!

    This is what the article stated; Laplante had called to ask for permission to hunt on her Frank Kenny Road property.

    "He thought there were two wild boars on our property," she said. "He essentially wanted permission to shoot the wild boars."

    She tried to call him back to deny him permission but couldn't reach him. Nor could she reach him by email or social media.

    He also said this ;
    [COLOR=#333333]Reached by CBC News, Laplante said shooting the animals was an honest mistake. He said another hunter had spotted what were thought to be wild boars in the area about a week earlier.[COLOR=#333333]Laplante said that's what he believed he was shooting at when he cornered the animals on Nooyen and Guilbeault's property.


    [COLOR=#333333]Laplante said in hindsight, he should have realized they weren't wild animals.
    [COLOR=#333333]"I wish my brain had clued in that these animals weren't wild. They weren't scared of humans. They weren't scared of us.
    [COLOR=#333333]
    Makes me wonder if he knows the difference between a domestic dog/pet and a coyote ?
    I wouldn't want him hunting on my property.

    From what I read permission was never granted. They trespassed and killed two tame pot bellied pigs. They deserve whatever maximum fines exist. Some people shouldn't hold hunting licences or PALs.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.
