I as wondering if anyone has followed this story about a SO CALLED HUNTER who shot a mans dogs to have something to shoot. Sounds as if he has gotten him self into some hot water. I first found the story on the NHTDA Facebook page { National Hound and Tree Dog Association } he is from Belmont County Ohio named Mike Chedester from what I am reading looks like he may have 2 felonies and even serve some time. I have to say that's not as bad as two men I know of that shot a mans hound and the hunter went back and killed the men.

I'm not familiar with your story, but that kind of crap is going on close to me now. Someone shot two dobermans on their owner's property and two weeks later a potbelly sow and her entire litter while they were behind a hog wire property fence just down the road from the dog attack. Needless to say the person(s) responsible will have a major a$$ kicking if they are found before the law does.

I have actually followed the story. He shot the dogs, for zero reason.

I'm not familiar with the story either. I did catch he shot them from his deer stand.
Was he trespassing as well?

Google his name and you can find all the info.
Took there collars off for trophies, sick so called hunters like this makes it bad for true hunters. hope they make and example out of him and I think they will. One thing for sure he did not know what SSS means instead got on Facebook bragging about what he had did.

Why? If the dogs were walked on a leash they'd still be alive. Do you let your dog's run wild? A lot of this story makes no sense to me, and the news is liberal and distorts the facts. Sure glad I'm not in Mike's shoe's though.

I'd would like to hear the other side of the story as well. The news reports don't mention who's property this happens on.
Of course you can always believe in the media.

I really dont approve of hunters that turn their dogs loose and let them go wherever. But, I understand that things happen, and dogs don't have a GPS. Had a lot of strays and neighbor dogs that show up and make a mess of our chickens or chase cows. Can't be mad at the dogs, feel really bad about shooting them, but you gotta protect what's yours.

What really irritates me is when someone dumps them off in the area. People get a puppy, lose interest when it grows up or move and can't take it with them, then drop them off out here and make it our problem

No sympathy for someone that shoots them just because. But, I'd also like to hear the other side of the story. The articles are pretty bleeding heart if you ask me.

Most states have a law that prohibits shooting dogs just because they're on your property.

Dog running loose in this part of the world is considered a target.
Surrounded by thousands of acres of hunting lease and neighbors that won't tolerate a problem. If you value your canine it better be on your place or with you.

Yes it is widely understood around here if your dog strays off your place then it might not come home.

I think there's a big difference between a property owner shooting a dog that's on HIS property, and a hunter shooting a dog anywhere else.

a month ago 3 dogs came here and ate 2 of our chickens.. only one dog left, and he wouldn't have had I been quicker.. They're in a hole, with the chickens.. if anyone ever goes digging for proof :P

We live at the edge of town so we get a few dogs thru here. I try to run them off unless they are messing with the chickens or cows. On Thanksgiving night last year I proved to all my neighbors that my chickens were more important to me than their free ranging pet dogs. Crazy thing, but the county commissioners passed a leash law years ago but failed to attach sanctions to it.
