As stated previously......unacceptable behaviour around an ill or wounded animal,then actually videoing it is sickening and nothing to do with animal welfare.
Back to the point,that dog was creating suffering,not ending it and no tracker or handler should be creating suffering-tracking is all about ending suffering.
This is why when people don’t know what they are doing they cause suffering as per the video evidence.
When a dog/team are not trained properly this is what happens.
Well you know more than me. I couldn't tell if the boar was wounded, sick or just trying to sleep. What I do know is that sticking your head in there may end up getting it ripped. Certainly the other dogs were not going in there. Also not being able to see a clear target while the boar was moving around in the bush is not conducive to safe shot when the dogs are in a bail up.
I"m no expert but I would have kept an eye on it until my mates came. Those dogs are too small to lug it and hold it while you knifed it. I could keep cover while the other tied the dogs up and then I would have heaved a big log right into the centre of it and have my mate blast it as the bush collapsed or the boar bolted. And I would have filmed the whole episode.
