While I can understand that she would be upset at a neighbors dog getting into her backyard, it is no reason to pick up a gun and just start blindly shooting. There are laws and procedures for everything. This woman acted irresponsibly and did not care at the time if she killed any animal or person. She should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

This should teach people not to shoot at all. I hope she has learned her lesson. It is sad that a woman had to die for something to happen to them to make people listen and pay attention

The poor woman that died my heart goes out to her family. It takes a very insane person to take another persons life. I hope that the lady learned her lesson.

There is no rational arguement for shooting at the animal and accidentally killing a human being.

Boy, tough neighborhood when they shoot at your dog for coming in the back yard! I'll make sure to stay out of this town. Sympathies for this lady who was killed by her neighbor.

Only a heartless idiot would kill a little dog anyway! But don't worry, the heartless idiot has a heartless attorney to represent them. So the poor lady that died trying to retrieve her little dog and all of her grieving family members and friends will have to sit through a trial while the defense attorney tries to get the judge to give their client a break.

It takes an insane person to let your animal continue to go onto someone else's property. If you want the four legged fur ball then keep it on your property. FREE this woman, she has done nothing wrong. <quoted text>
Maybe you need to be charged with being an idiot. No sane person picks up a gun and shoots at a dog for coming in their yard...at most, call the pound. Even if the woman shot would not have passed, the shooter still should have been charged, we do not live in the old west where things were settled by the fastest shooter.

Yes let's lock up this lady for years as many have pointed out for accidently have a bullet miss the dog and ricochet into a woman on the other side of a fence.

We need to lock her types up and keep the child molesters, repeat felons, i.e. rapists, robbers, drug dealers, and thieves on the streets because we don't have enough prison space. For all of you that are whining that this woman should go to prison for a long time ... No more "outrage" when a three time covicted felon ends up murdering a child in cold pre-meditated blood.

NO criminal charges are warranted here. Sue her in civil court and she will lose her rear-end.

And if anything is criminal it is the fact that in Indiana neighbors animals can come and go on your private property without penalty. THat is what is criminal, we land owners have no rights anymore.

Southpark, your an idiot. Shooting a .357 in a neighborhood at a dog is plain out crazy. I don't care how many times the dog messed up there yard. This lady should be charged with murder and then put to death. The world does not any more hot headed idiots running around.

Guys, southpark is obviously a troll... don't feed it!

I hope they charge this woman to the fullest extent of the law. Idiots like this are the ones that give responsible gun owners a bad name. Firearms are for defending yourself and your family, not getting pissed at a stupid dog.

For anyone who might even think of standing up for her... what if this idiot shot higher and the bullet struck a child a block away? It wouldn't have been that child's fault someone's dog was in her yard. There is no excuse for getting pissed and recklessly discharging a firearm.
