Buzz Petition

The issue of hunting is highly controversial, particularly in the world of animal rights advocacy, but regardless of personal viewpoints on hunting, the majority of people would agree that shooting and killing someone’s beloved pet dog is wrong.

A petition on Care2 describes a tragic incident involving a four-year-old therapy dog named Kaoru. While on a peaceful hike in British Columbia with his guardian, a friend, and several other dogs, Kaoru was shot point blank by a hunter who was just ten feet away. The hunter claimed he thought Kaoru was a wolf, but at such close range, it is difficult to understand how someone could confuse a dog on a hike with his guardian and other dogs as a wolf. Regardless, hunting wolves is not allowed where Kaoru was shot, and he was actually shot in a “No Hunting and No Shoot Zone,” although the surrounding areas do permit some types of hunting. No charges were filed, though an investigation is supposedly underway.

Kaoru was trained to assist children with autism and other special needs, and his absence and loss is greatly affecting many. It is unimaginable to think what his guardian must have felt as her beloved animal companion was shot in front of her and died in her arms.

If you are outraged this innocent dog’s life was cut short for absolutely no reason, please take a moment to sign this petition demanding that the “No Hunting and No Shoot Zone” be expanded and enforced in order to prevent another tragedy like this from happening again.

And please share this with your network to increase support for this important cause!

No charges filed? Why? He knew what he was doing, he knew it was a dog, he knew there were people there, he knew where he was. No charges? Why?

I have nothing against hunting. As long as the hunter is killed humanely.

People wake up you don\'t sign petitions, you don\'t fine these type of so called humans and you don\'t give them jail time, you KILL them these kind of so called humans are expendable. Then and only then will you start weeding out this type of scum.

This man should be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law. He shot Kaoru with no compunction while there were 2 people and 9 other dogs around her. and obviously has no value for animal or human lives. Please do not allow this hunter to add more innocent victims; He should also lose his hunting licence for the rest of his life. Even if he thought Kaoru was a wolf, he showed total disregard for basic hunting safety considerations which resulted in the murder of a beloved service dog. Please show him there are consequences to such carelessness

As a dog owner, I cannot help but ask why was this dog off the leash in a leash only area, why was it not wearing a bright bandana or vest as is customary for pet owners during hunting season? It sounds like the justice needed here is for the owner of this dog to be charged with endangerment and neglect and banned from owning another dog.

Please re-read the entire article. They were in a no-hunting area. The owner had no reason to think her dog was in danger. Perhaps being off the leash was inappropriate, but in no way could she have known her dog was endangered. To bring charges against her, there must be some semblance of intent. The guilty party here is the hunter who shot into a group of 10 service dogs and their two guardians. He should not get a free pass as he knowingly caused loss of a precious life, in a incident that could have been more deadly than it was. I pray you never lose your dog in a senseless act of violence and then are judged so insensitively. Only then would you understand what this woman has suffered and what she has lost.

Have you been an ignorant asshole your whole life? Why don\'t you RE-read the article, if you even read it in the first place, or are you the killer\'s mother?

Hunting is wrong, period. All its victims were innocent and had lives that mattered to them.
