Minnesota hunter admitted shooting dogs, owner claims
Two young German Shepherds, year-and-a-half old Devaki and Makita, were shot and killed on November 12. Co-owners Shannon Hautala, Gary Kuoppala and Alexis Gunderson spoke with the press.
The dogs ducked under a fence and ran into the woods. The owners started calling for the dogs as soon as they went out of sight. Hautala said she heard gunshots shortly afterwards.
All they said is they can shoot anything that comes on their land and if the dogs come on their land, they can shoot them.
Hautala says the dogs were going to be therapy dogs, while Gunderson added:
I'm scared that if they shoot my dogs, they might shoot somebody, ... if somebody's on their land...
As of November 16, authorities say no one has admitted to shooting the dogs to them and that the case is at a standstill.
A "Justice for Devaki and Makita" community on Facebook has been set up.
