    Did the MP officer get permission first? Did he call Wildlife? Let's see how the court case in Glovertown goes now.

    What is the difference between this MP officer discharging a firearm in a public place ( the airfield) and a man in Glovertown ( i think ) discharging a firearm to kill a bear that was a threat to his family. Are we making the life of a dog more valuable than the life of a human being??
