Not only do people who own a lot of hunting dogs treat them poorly and purposely leave them behind when they are not good hunters, but in NC hunting dogs are exempt from most of the animal welfare laws that apply to non-hunting dogs. The hunt clubs and National Rifle Association (NRA) fight hard to make sure hunting dogs are exempt from any animal welfare bill before it becomes law. These poor dogs should have the same basic laws as the rest of the dogs in this state, but sadly that is not the case.
