And as long as we are on the topic of sad stories, did everyone read the story in the Argus a couple weeks ago about the dog that got shot in the face (intentionally) by a group of hunters? If not, I will summarize. A guy from Viborg was out hunting on the Missouri River. Another group of hunters in a blind about 250 yards away skybusted a bird that locked its wings and sailed about 1/4 mile away. Their dog wouldn't make the retrieve but the viborg man's yellow lab did. The group of hunters shot at the dog as it was coming back with the bird, filling its face with bb's and causing it to go blind.
I guess there is always going the be the bad apples in every activity there is.
