The dog’s owner had permission to hunt on the property he was originally on.

Indiana DNR want to make it clear hunting dogs and the game they are chasing do not understand property lines. It is a felony to shoot a hunting dog.

 

 

Hunters should contact the landowner to retrieve their dog from property they don’t have permission from and contact a conservation officer if there are any problems at 1-800-TIP-IDNR.

Pollock faces a felony for cruelty to an animal and a misdemeanor for criminal mischief.
