* dog haterz look away now *
Had been enjoying a stroll whilst it was dry and was approached by a dog with what I assumed to be a toy in its mouth. It wasn't. It was a most definitely dead leveret (baby hare).
Was talking to its owner, who had 2 other dogs all English pointers, ready to engage in a Daily Mail stylee rantette. But I didn't. Instead I asked an array of questions in order to determine if this was typical behaviour of this dog. It was.
Now pointers are obviously a gundog who 'point' to the fur and feather but am very surprised that this one killed. Any gundog experts around?
The woman took the dead leveret off the dog and was holding it whilst she answered my questions, quite bizarre.
What should I have done? I feel I should have done something to challenge the behaviour of this dog, and its owner too.
