Oops ......​

Amanda Rose Barnes insisted she acted in self-defense after the pooch growled at her




A Montana woman who shot and skinned a Siberian husky she mistook for a wolf on a hunting trip, and then posted the gruesome pictures on social media, has sparked public outrage – and a police investigation.

Amber Rose Barnes, 36, of Martin City, faced swift backlash after she bragged about the kill on Facebook.

"So this morning I set out for a solo predator hunt for a fall black bear however I got the opportunity to take another predator wolf pup 2022 was a great feeling to text my man and say I just smoked a wolf pup #firstworld #onelesspredatorMT," she wrote above five photos of her posing with the bloodied pooch.


In one picture, the skinned husky is sprawled out on her flatbed truck as she smiles broadly, stroking the pup's lifeless head with her right hand and clutching her rifle with her left.

It didn’t take long for readers to respond to the shocking blunder and inform Barnes that she had bagged man's best friend – not a wolf.
"Amber Rose here hunted, shot, AND SKINNED a HUSKY.. not a wolf, an obvious #HUSKY," an irate Twitter user pointed out.
One critic dubbed her the "Montana dog butcher" and another called her a "psychopath."

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office issued a press release stating that on Sept. 23 a local had picked up 11 husky and shepherd mix dogs that had been abandoned in the Doris Creek area of Flathead National Forest about 60 miles south of Glacier National Park – the same area where Barnes was hunting.
Animal Control later located more dogs in the area.

"During this investigation, we were advised through Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks that one of the dogs may have been shot," the release says. "The person who is believed to have shot the dog has been identified. The case is under investigation."
But in a subsequent Facebook post, Barnes dug in and insisted she acted in self-defense.

"This animal was growling howling and coming at me like it was going to eat me," she wrote. "Yes, I made a mistake because I did think it was a hybrid wolf pup but I was not aware of a [sic] 19 dogs being dropped 11 miles into the wilderness either way yes I would still have shot it because it was aggressive and coming directly for me!"

Looks like it would be more likely that she could eat the husky, rather than it eat her. What a prize. I feel the same way about her as the idiot that released the dogs.

This is why I don't go hunting and question why some are allowed too. Went to the grocery store the other day, it said ground round, does that mean it could be cat.

That is a person that shouldn't have ANY firearms ! It was howling and growling at her...if she did that to me could I shoot her ? Darwin is a little slow with this moron.

she's changing the story
to not look so damn stupid
cover her own ***
she shot a puppy/subadult at a min., it couldn't weight 40#s
my neighbor 5 y/o female is way, way bigger than 'what she shot'/skinned
& it's (she's) a small Huskie maybe 50#s

She could have fired off a shot,
it'd have run away
maybe call 'animal control',
if you have any doubt/don't know
'would have been the right thing to do'

sorry
she's clueless
, she thought it was a wolf
& she killed it anyway
they (wolfs) are protected too, to some effect/std
so she committed a crime there
(if she thought it was a wolf)
unless you are attacked or livestock is attacked
that 'one small Huskie pup' isn't big enough

thinks she shot a wolf & then brags/posts it & proceeded to skin it
& post it again, sick ****

even more clueless skinning it & posting it on social media

I have no issues with people hunting or killing & skinning their kills
legally & for legal animals in season or for actual defense or person or livestock
But;
that was a Huskie dog/puppy, less than a year old/subadult at best
it was probably scared of her, for good reasons

We have rescued six Siberian Huskies from local Humane Society s over the last twenty years

Niko just turned fourteen , and we will have to put him down soon

Then we will be looking for another to keep Ella busy , she is only two

Having two keeps them busy and happy



How in the **** do you mistake a Siberian Husky for a damn Wolf

Siberians are the worse , and I mean worse guard dogs

Only time I have seen them get aggressive is with each other over food
