Just to clarify the stud was running the bitch did not run. But was parked all over and aired near tests. The owner was first kindly warned when she pulled beside a pro and let her dogs out with his and was worried about her bitch getting bred. The pro warned her and made mention to the hunt test committee Then Saturday night was captured on pic of tying the two and that person filed a complaint with one of her home clubs and nothing was done. Don't see why it was dropped she admitted her bitch was in season and because of who she was it was ok. If you or I had been in the same situation curious what would have happened.

WRC HR Lennoxlove's Run with Wolves JH, WCX ("Cheyenne") ... still so fondly remembered

Dixie ... the "spare parts" dog
I've also had folks allow a very agressive dog wander near our testing dogs in training, again noting it was their right. My comment - my dog is very valuable, should your dog choose to attempt to injure my dog, he is dead. That guy took off & we expected a visit from the sheriff, but it never happened.
In general those people just want to be noticed .

"It is the duty of the committee, not of the AKC, to deal
initially with acts of alleged prejudicial conduct which
occur during or in connection with a club’s event. The
phrase “in connection with” means any incident where
the parties involved are there because of the event;.."
So I don't see a limitation to folks who are "entered" in the event. Perhaps a quiet reminder to the individual that a finding of misconduct would result in immediate suspension from ALL AKC privileges - including litter/puppy registration - would have convinced him/her to load up the bitch in question and leave. And I'm not saying the individual should have been suspended. I was not there, did not see what transpired so am unqualified to make any comment other than that the people witnessing an alleged violation have a duty to report the same to the event committee and the committee has an obligation to act.
I think it's all the same at least in spirit. The accused misconduct related to both the event (committee) as well as their own clubs by-laws on conduct regardless of who held the event. In that case, club by-laws for conduct is at least a second line of inquiry should the host club not pursue. But that leads to my question - are club by-laws written well enough to fairly pursue and potentially act on the misconduct of a member relative to an AKC related activity. Or broader yet - conduct in general which may excuse them from membership in the club.
It really is hard to believe that the accused, based on the behavior described, is a fantastic individual highly favored by all. Probably more likely, everyone has a day job and can't afford the time and ugliness of initiating a formal process to deal with the situation.

you don't see why it was dropped? There was never anything to drop, nobody filed a complaint with the club holding the event. This is perhaps the stupidest post of all time on RTF.
