Here is a story about a Hunter who shot and killed a Malamute dog thinking it was a wolf.
I am the owner of a large malamute. The breed is acknowledged as being closer to the wolf than any other breed of dog. In appearance, they are sometimes confused with the Siberian Huskie. Malamutes are on average about 1/3 larger than huskies and have brown eyes. The huskie has blue or green eyes. Malamutes have an even temperament so one or two are usually teamed with Huskie dog sled teams as they tend to calm the huskies.
In Missouri, it is illegal to shot a dog while hunting for any reason. Dogs are considered personal property.
In this tragic accidental shooting do you feel that the hunter is liable for civil damages?

Here is an Update: Montana sheriff's office: Hunter who shot dog did not commit crime
My opinion is that the hunter needs to stop hunting or get glasses. The Sheriff should receive the A-hole of the year award.
