Two men, who were preparing to shoot a dog and then bury the dog’s body in the woods in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, were thwarted in their attempt to commit the cruel act when an observant DNC officer caught sight of them in late March. According to Wednesday’s publication of Mlive, the men had already dug a hole to bury the dog in when CO Chris Lynch of DNR District 2 approached them.
Lynch was first told that the men were burying a dead dog – but he discovered that the hole in the woods only contained an empty box. The men later admitted that they intended to shoot an old dog and then bury the dog’s body in the hole. Lynch observed the dog and noted that the dog appeared to be healthy – the men were advised that they should take the dog to an area animal shelter.
According to the report, the men later admitted that killing the dog and burying the body in the woods was “probably weren’t the smartest thing to do.”
The dog was surrendered to a shelter and placed up for adoption – the men faced “enforcement action” for the loaded gun that was inside of their vehicle.
