Sounds like, according to the news last night they have the shooter who supposedly turned himself in and said, according to his attorney, if you believe attorney's, that the guy thought the dog was a coyote, and he was feeding his cows when he shot the dog. I wonder if he was feeding his elk and not cows. How do you confuse a dog with a vest on and a coyote.
Anyhow news said they knew the individiual but were asked to keep it quiet untill the prosecutor filed charges and released his name. I hope the shooter has a lot of protection around his property and can defend whatever he gets. If everyone around knows when he will appear in court, everyone should show up in support of the dog and owner.
News said that it was folks from the public, his friends, and neighbors who turned gave the Sheriff enough information to go after him when the shooter decided to turn himself in.
