Murderer!

Today, my husband got charged with felony animal cruelty, because while I was at work, he shot someone's hunting dog on our property. I'm a veterinarian. This should be great for my reputation. FML

Are you going to keep him or are you going to rehome him?

I’ve seen several stories on reddit lately about people shooting people’s pets. What in the **** is going on with people these days?? COVID giving everyone some kind of blood lust or what? Really sorry for the poor dog. I’d be pissed at your husband not just for your reputation but for him being a total, utter unfeeling asshole. That’s a family’s pet, companion, and friend, or at least a guy’s hunting buddy. These animals have personalities, and they have personal relationships with their owners and their families. And trust me, they are ******* devastated. I hope at the very least your husband feels remorse for such an act of ******* cruelty on so many levels. And if he doesn’t, he needs professional help. RIP, doggo 😢

you chose this profession and you chose to marry him.

I read this as an “out of the blue” thing. It’s entirely possibly the husband showed no signs of animal cruelty before this happened.

Are you going to keep him or are you going to rehome him?

no need to rehome the guy, he needs anger management and obedience training though

Why should you be held responsible for what someone else did?

I could see the media taking this and running with it, especially in a small town. Depending where you are, stuff like this often makes the news — “Local Vet’s Husband Murders Beloved Hunting Dog in Cold Blood. Animal Cruelty Charges Pending.” I was also disappointed at first read when it appeared OP was more concerned about her career than the murder, but I also know the media can take things and run with it, and they looove clickbaity headlines. Everything sucks all around. Obviously her career implications rank lower than someone losing a beloved furry family member, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t also an issue to consider.

Not all dogs are harmless though. It's possible the hunting down was aggressive towards their own animals or him. I'm not saying that's the case though, just possible.

It should be a bonding moment for you both, seeing how you both enjoy giving dogs shots. Maybe you can find someone who is a bartender for dogs and have a threesome. Yet another connotation of "shots!"

I believe the technical term is barktender. Well, in this case, it may be a bonetender.

This has Ricky Gervais energy. "Is shooting dogs funny? No, absolutely not. Is a joke about shoot having multiple meanings involving dogs funny? absolutely."

My questions are why was that dog on your property and have you had issues with said dog before? It sucks but if there were reason it's understandable.

Why is it a felony to shoot an animal on ur property? House pet or not. And Pigs are smarter than dogs, none of y’all are crying about the way we treat them….

I'm surprised this is a felony charge. Surely there has to be a point you can shoot an animal for being on your property. Pet owners have a responsibility for the behavior and wearabouts of their pets.
