Oh man..

"A Lake County man is mourning the loss of his dog after two bear hunting hounds ran onto his property and mauled the Chihuahua to death last week.

Dennis Prieur, 62, lives on 40 acres of wooded land in Pinora Township. He started his morning as usual on Friday, Aug. 28, when his two dogs woke him up to go outside.

His pets, a 7-year-old Chihuahua named Ava and a German Shepherd lab mix named Roxie, went out into the yard near the deck. Not long after, Prieur was in the bathroom when he heard barking from outside.

Roxie was jumping at the door. Prieur couldn't hear Ava.

Outside, he spotted two bear hunting dogs wearing collars and radio controlled antennae, he said.

"Ava was already started to be ripped to pieces," said Prieur, who has a bad knee and could not run to chase the dogs.

By the time he returned from retrieving his handgun, one of the hunting dogs was carrying the Chihuahua in its mouth to the neighbor's property."

Sorry for his loss. It shouldn't happen.

That's a bad deal. I've had a similar thing happen with a neighbor's chessie and my sites chihuahua. Dog was a terror to the neighborhood.
Hunt hard, rest when you're dead.
