On February 4, a dog veered from the footpath through Dunstable Downs Golf Club and was accidentally shot by a licensed firearms user hunting foxes.Well, it's understandable, some popular breeds of dogs these days do look quite fox-like, especially in the dark so...
German Shepherd Bruno needed an operation to remove pellets from his face but has since recovered.They must have some humoungous foxes in Dunstable! Or this guy's an idiot who should not have a gun licence.
Which is odd for professional vermin control folk.
Club manager Mr Mutton added: “The club did not employ anyone to shoot on the course, we’ve allowed the licenced firearms user to come and shoot vermin.”Ah. So not a professional, more like an overly-enthusiastic amateur. That way disaster lies.
A Beds Police spokesman said: “We are investigating reports that a dog was shot and injured while in the grounds of the Dunstable Downs golf course on Saturday 4 February.
Investigations are on-going and anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference JD/5233/2017.”What 'investigation'? You should have all the details you need!
