    Somebody would've been shot, either me or him. Glad he got paid but I don't think I would've stayed cool.

    It appears to me that the land owner pointed a loaded weapon in the direction of the dog, and the man working the dog. I'm glad the jury awarded the owner the money and I hope it financially ruins the man who killed the dog. But there were human lives threatened and I can't believe the guy with the loaded gun didn't get charged criminally, convicted and given a nice orange jump suit to wear for a few years.

    Before I got Ted I was into coon hunting for years...

    That landowner is reason enough that abortion should be legal, heck mandatory in some locals.
    What is wrong with people???

    as an aside I was offered blank checks for Ted, there was no dollar amount that could have bought him.
    I would give everything I have for one more peaceful day with him...

    That sociopath wouldn't have cared and you'd both be dead.

    No question about it. There is no way a cop could not come up with several LEGITIMATE charges for what happened there.

    What a horrible situation for the dog owner. He was unarmed and could not protect his dog. I hate trespassers and poachers (not calling the dog owner a poacher) as much as anyone, but that landowner has completely taken leave of his senses. I've confronted armed people who were (both knowingly and unknowingly) trespassing and hunting on our land without permission and it is a weird thing to have to do. I got pretty fired up a couple of times but I didn't even point my weapon at them and they didn't point theirs at me.
