Dog Shot - Mistaken for Wolf

Posted: Updated:

Layne Spence says he was cross country skiing with his three malamutes near Lee Creek campground Sunday afternoon, when a hunter killed his smallest dog, named Little Dave.

"I heard a shot and boom, I look at Little Dave and half of his leg was blown off," says Spence.

Spence told authorities the hunter fired several more times, even though he motioned and yelled for him to stop.

Spence tells us, "I said, don't you know what a wolf looks like, I said you just killed my dog. This is like one of my kids."

Spence says the hunter did approach him after shooting, and told him he thought Little Dave was a wolf, and asked if there was anything he could do to help. But, Spence says his dog was wearing a collar with a light, and because he was upset, he told the hunter to leave.

"You look through your sights, you know what you're looking at, and I don't see how on Earth that someone thought he was a wolf," Spence tells FOX Montana.

But, sheriff's officials say there's no evidence of criminal intent, because the hunter shot the dog thinking it was a wolf.
