Coyote Hound Killer Prosecuted

Hound Killer pays $7500.00 ? faces other charges.
PA Game Commission Officer Commended by Coyote Hunters.

In November, 2016, two coyote hounds (BWT) were shot, one fatally, by a fall turkey hunter, who claimed he mistook them for coyotes.
During the Sporting Dog Owner?s Meeting with the PA Game Commission, at PGC Headquarters in Harrisburg, on June 27th, Dick Bednarczyk, President, PA State Fox & Coyote Hunter?s Assn. presented the Association?s plaque to Tioga County WCO Steven Brussese. The award indicated the coyote hunter?s appreciation for the role that the officer played in the successful investigation of Game Law violations connected to the shooting.
PA State Police Officer, Donald Wolfe, Mansfield Barracks, led the criminal phase of the investigation, which resulted in the shooter paying $7500.00 restitution to the hound owner. The shooter faces additional game law violations, including riding an ATV with a loaded shotgun.

Good for them. $7500 is not enough.

What he did to the guy's dogs should have been done to him for being stupid as well as breaking other game laws. Sounds like a real stand up guy. Maybe some tit for tat will stop some of the stupidity.

This kind of nonsense is EXACTLY why I put an orange vest on my dog every time I take her in the woods. So far, I've never seen a blaze-orange coyote.

The hounds were black, tan and white. He knew what he was shooting at.

SO, just to get this straight, you would like to see this man killed ?

Probably not killed, that's a tad steep, but let the owner of the dogs take a pot shot at him like he did to the dogs. In the leg or something. Let him suffer some to see what it feels like what he did to the dogs for no reason. I really don't care what anyone thinks about that. I get sick and tired of this crap of just up and shooting people's animals. And no, I don't inherently place a higher value on a human's life over an animal just because they are a human. There are humans out there who don't deserve that regard. Those dogs didn't do anything, the idiot just shot them. Ask the dog owner if he thought $7500 was enough. I doubt it.

At a bare minimum, let him sit in the klink for a while to think about what he did.
