Losing a beloved pup who has been a part of the family for a long time is heartbreaking. Knowing that the loss of life resulted from a deliberate carelessness rubs salt to the wound.
Scott and Carina Fuller’s family, residents of Bethel, Minnesota, has two very loving dogs named Hera and Zeus. These medium-sized Boxer dogs were such delightful pups who like to play with the kids a lot and to wander as well. However, on the tragic day of December 13, Hera wasn’t able to go back home.
Knowing that their two dogs would immediately turn up once called, Scott realized that something went absolutely wrong. With Zeus direction, they were able to locate the six- year-old pup on a nearby clearing. A hunting arrow impaled her cold and lifeless body.
The family was stricken with grief because of what happened to the sweet pup. All they ever wanted is for the inconsiderate person to be held responsible for what he has done.
The most disheartening part was the fact that the Anoka County Sheriff’s department won’t punish the hunter who shot Hera to her death. Though deliberately shooting dogs is prohibited in the country as stated by the law, they concluded that the dog might have been mistaken for a Coyote. Scott, as a hunter himself, refused to believe such reasoning since Hera doesn’t look like a Coyote at all.
Together, the couple is doing everything so their kids and most of all Zeus, could cope with Hera’s sudden loss. Now that the possibility of serving justice is a lost cause, at least what happened may serve as a lesson to the hunters to be more discerning and careful. Carina also emphasized that the unfortunate fate of the harmless pup could happen to anyone since the hunting ground is located near residential areas.
