A hunter, firing in the dark at what he believed was a deer, fatally shot a woman on Wednesday. According to the New York Daily News, 43-year-old Rosemary Billquist’s life ended shortly after she took her two dogs out for a walk in Sherman, New York.
It was 34-year-old Thomas Jadlowski who fired the fatal shot from a pistol approximately 40 minutes after the sun had set…a time that is illegal to hunt. Dale Dunkelberger of the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s hunter education program, commented on the illegal action in the Buffalo News:
“In this case, it appears from what I gathered this was after sunset, and he shouldn’t have been out there hunting after sunset. You’re done. That’s the law.”
Jamie Billquist, Rosemary’s husband, noted that his wife, an avid runner, was an “angel” who was always quick to help others. No charges have been filed as of yet and the shooter is cooperating with the authorities.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you need to do more than “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
