OMG...I will have to come back to this one to visit site, to upset to look.

Truly a sad day when all of these idiots go out and do this....Do have a shot gun for Trap shooting, but, would have no problem putting some buck shot into all of these ScrewBalls!!!

How sad... Poor Maximus, not threatening to humans, nor farm animals and still some idiot with a gun shoots and kills him. Hope he is caught and "hung out to dry"! RIP Maximus.
Thanks Cher.

Awful, and so sad, this must of been one fine animal who had a great genetic potential... who on earth could contemplate such a horrible act
