On May 22 a resident of Likely, willfully, without notice, or warning, took aim and shot through the lungs of an innocent one-and-a-half year old loved, cherished, sweet white husky/shepherd cross female dog “Sky” whose crime was walking across the neighbour’s front lawn. She was killed on the Quesnel Road by the river.
Only in their home for five weeks, after being rescued when the original owner abandoned her, she was usually kept on a lead. Now she is dead at the cruelty of another, who robbed love and joy from her family and friends forever.
Something needs to be done to stop such malicious, cruel behaviour from happening. This person is in violation of the Livestock Legislative Act, section 11 (2. (a)(b)).
There was no evidence the pup was engaged with any livestock.
The people who have now murdered this pup have also been known to threaten to harm pets of other families in the small community of Likely … how is it that we can allow such behaviour to carry on?
Where I come from, if there are issues with your child, your pet or you … people would let you know and if there is need to make restitution then you make restitution and restrain/retrain not to continue any ill-wanted behaviour … not to take matters into your own hands and kill at your liberty and then get caught in your lies.
Furthermore, if you take leave to examine your senses to determine whether you are able to distinguish one person/animal from another, good and bad demeanour, and show lack of discernment, then you have no right to discharge let alone own a firearm as you display a severe lack in good judgement with malicious intent. I grew up on a farm with livestock. We never threatened to kill or killed any intruder. You don’t build a chicken pen for the chickens you build a chicken pen so intruders don’t get in. What happens to a community when we harbour such cruel, non-forthcoming, maliciousness … like a disease it eats away at the body. The bullet did not lodge in her delicate body it shot out, after piercing her lungs, to within feet from the neighbour’s residence; hence endangering others.
We owe it to each of us and those who have innocently paid with their lives, to make our homes, communities safe where we are each responsible for our actions and “Man Up.”
