Why are we still going back and forth on the what have's, could'ves, should'ves, would'ves? The fact is this man lived in virtual wilderness. No civilization around for many, many miles. Not just 30 minutes by car, not just a little hike. Wilderness! Canada is a huge place. There is only a very very small part of it that is actually habitated. The rest is basically barren with small pockets of humanity. Even those of us who live in the densely populated areas have trouble comprehending the sheer areas that are empty. Empty! No people. Or very few. Those that are there make their own laws. There is no one near by to govern. And who says that is a bad thing. Unless you are in a situation such as this one.
That bullet that you are talking about him using on his dogs to stop the breeding probably went on wild game to supply food for them. Sometimes it isn't about hoarding. Sometimes it's about trying to do what's right. Sometimes when you try to do what's right you get bogged down in it. Not his fault if there was no one there to help. Sometimes you are so busy trying to deal with every day life and living you forget the "what if's". Sad if you live in a perfect world. He didn't.
Now there is a wonderful group of people trying to rescue those dogs that they can. I am sure the rest will be culled quietly. Please let's let them get on with what they are trying to do with no more censure.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.
We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
