Alexey Osmolin can’t sleep. He can’t work. He can’t eat. And when he’s at home, he finds himself reaching out for someone who is no longer there.

It’s been this way, Osmolin said, since Sunday, the day a conservation officer shot and killed his dog Rada.

Rada, a five-year-old Belgian Shepherd, was sitting by Osmolin’s side Sunday afternoon as Osmolin and his friend monitored their fishing lines on Black Water Lake, just outside Pemberton. After several hours of ice fishing, they were getting ready to call it a day.

At some point, Osmolin said Rada, whom he’s had since she was 2 ½ weeks old, left his side by the ice hole. He can remember hearing Rada barking, turning to see what was going on, and watching, horrified, as a conservation officer, gun in hand, opened fire.

OK this guy's got to lose his job. A simple warning shot in the air should have been enough to deter the dog, if in fact it was charging. He also had other options as per his training. He just wanted to kill something, it would seem.

I got kicked out of the slut walk for trying to bid on the participants.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Feel sad for the dog and the owner but I wouldn't jump to blame the conservation officer. After all he chose this career because he must love nature and animals. This is why he spends several hours per day looking after wild life related issues.

I agree.

I have friends who are Posties and meter readers and you can scare the crap out of virtually any dog with an umbrella....

...a simple warning shot should have been sufficient.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

If I felt a charging dog was a threat and in the officer's position I'd have fired too. I don't mind other people waiting to get mauled to decide to take something seriously, but I value my safety far more than an animal's life. Obviously this officer feels the same way, good for him. Dog owner should keep better track of his pets next time, eh?

Obviously I wasn't there but I think I would have used a baton on the dog. The dog would never be the same afterwards.

I would have just used my fists, because I'm a badass and guns are evil.

I'm sure Wayne Lapierre would agree with you...

...in fact, if everyone (not just conservation officers) were packing, there would be a lot less people getting bitten by dogs.
