UPDATE: It has come to our attention that the Facebook page was fake, however the news story is very real. Michael Chedester was arrested this afternoon and is facing felony charges for intentionally causing serious physical harm to a companion animal. Follow this developing story below:
Michael Chedester, a considerably disturbed individual, shot and killed two dogs in Belmont County, Ohio yesterday and will be facing felony charges this morning. While such stories are hard to hear, it’s good that this guy is no longer in the woods. We have to remember that part of hunting IS having respect for all animals, if you’re a hunter and can’t respect that, consider taking up a new hobby.
Warning: Graphic Content
Earlier today, he posted photos of two dogs that he apparently shot and killed with a caption reading “Shot 2 stupid dogs that got off their leash it was a clean kill now leave me alone please.” Sorry Mike, but when you do stupid things that are against the law, nobody is going to “be nice to you” as requested on your fan page.
In our opinion, this guy needs to be tracked down and reported by everyone IMMEDIATELY.
As hunters, we need to band together and publicly condemn such disgusting acts. Period.
We didn’t want to post the actual Facebook post due to its gruesome nature, however, you can view it at your own discretion below:
