Hunter smashes dog killer’s rifle after tracking down the GPS collars
About a week before Christmas Chad Crane was hunting coyotes in Ohio when his trained dogs were shot and killed by another hunter.

Crane found John Barr attempting to remove the GPS tracking collars from his dogs. In a fit of rage, Crane grabbed Barr’s rifle and smashed it to pieces against a tree. As the two men argued, Crane began recording a video, which he later shared on Facebook.

In the video Barr claims to be the victim claiming that he shot the dogs after they entered his property and started barking. According to the GPS tracking data, neither dog ever entered Barr’s property. Their bodies were found in an adjacent plot of land owned by William M. Welch, where Crane had been given permission to hunt.

GPS data collected from the location where the dogs were killed.

“Also it appears that the dog shooter, Mr Barr, was hunting without a license, lied to law enforcement, and there is a whole list of illegal activities he has committed along with this shooting incident,” Crane wrote on Facebook after sharing the video below.

While it is legal in the state of Ohio to hunt on your own property without a license, Mr. Barr appears to have been illegally hunting on his neighbor’s land when he shot and killed Crane’s dogs.

The Ohio Sportsman & Sport Dog Association advised Crane to share the video below and encourage viewers to contact the Perry County Prosecutor at 740-342-4582. “Please respectfully call the prosecutor and ask for justice,” Crane asks. “Mr Barr should face maximum punishment.”  Please sign and share!  Let make him pay with the maximum sentence!
