On Saturday, a hunting dog was shot while participating in the Trenton Field trial in Onslow County, North Carolina. According to the Jones County Sheriff’s Office, the female hound disappeared during the event and when she was found, it was determined that she had been shot in the backbone and the injury proved to be serious enough that she had to be euthanized.

  1. I like this crowd. Wish some of us could get elected to office ! We’d pass some tough legislation…an eye for an eye! Wish the cruelty would end. So sad.

  2. Y todo por esa estupidéz de supuesto deporte llamado caza. No hay necesidad de asesinar animales por diversión y no había necesidad de que la perrita saliera lastimada si se hubiese quedado en casa.
