The connection between owners and their dogs is usually one of undeniable love and compassion. But for one hound dog and his owner, that bond was tested after an incident that almost separated the two forever. Melissa Howell has the story.
It was suppose to be just another day tracking the hounds as they ran bears out of the corn fields in Starksboro. But for Oran Lamphere and his hound dog, Bear, Saturday afternoon took a turn for the worse. ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:26:34 "And then all of a sudden the collar went off and then I said, something's wrong." 02:26:38)) Bear's GPS collar had been removed... He was then hit 3 times with bolts from a cross bow. ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:27:23 "two were in his spine, in his muscles below his spine so they missed his spine and one in his head. Straight through, shot down right into his brain." 02:27:34)) Bear stumbled almost a mile to a nearby road, where a passerby saw the injured dog -- and stayed with him until Lamphere came rushing from the woods. ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:27:37 "I immediately panicked and put him in my truck and brought him to Bristol Animal Hospital." 02:27:43)) These were the bolts vets removed from Bear's back and head -- shots that could've been fatal. ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:28:51 "I just dont want this to happen to anybody else's pet. I love my dogs unconditionally and I can't believe he's walking, I can't believeh He's listening, i can't believe he's like nothing ever happened." 02:29:07)) ((02:41:29 BEAR IN CAMERA 02:31:33)) That day, Bear refused to give in, but the suspect is still on the lose. ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:44:16 "I wish he could talk, you know what I mean? Cause we would know right off." 02:44:20)) Vermont Fish and Wildlife says the shooter could face charges for interfering with lawful hunting. Although the department only sees a few violations a year, they say this case is unusual. ((Oran Lamphere Jr./Bear's Owner 02:40:20 "Kind of changed my perspective on him surviving or dying." 02:40:26)) ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:42:05 "We live for these dogs, you know? We enjoy them." 02:42:09)) As police continue there investigating, Bear is taking it easy... ((Oran Lamphere/Bear's Owner 02:44:48 you a good boy, yes you are)) And he's reminding us all he's got a lot more life to live..Melissa Howell, Channel 3 News.

Two state representatives plan to push for prison release reform in the next legislative session. Representatives Kurt Wright and Adam Greshin are both speaking out about a perceived need to monitor violent offenders after they max-out their prison sentence. Wright and Greshin are pushing for legislation that would make the Department of Corrections create some type of post-release confinement or supervision for prisoners who are "highly likely to reoffend." Greshin attended a community meeting in Waitsfield last week to discuss how the community will remain safe after convicted rapist and violent offender Richard Laws is released from prison after 23 years.
(00:19:40:00 Rep. Adam Greshin/I-Warren)(("Wh en we look into the future and we look legislatively, we have to be very mindful of the problems we'll have down the road. 00:21:00:00 Civil confinement or civil commitment is one idea and I think it is worth dealing with. It's disappointing that we didn't give it more time in past sessions, but this is a new session coming up in January, and I suspent it will be on the table.")) Laws' release date is scheduled for April of next year.
Preserving history thanks to a community of volunteers. Peggy Pearl has been volunteering her time for more than a year now to help create a History and Heritage Center in St. Johnsbury. She has had a lot of help along the way, including Denise Scavitto and Angela Drew who have managed the Facebook page and helped spread the word. The ladies say without the volunteers, their mission would not be possible.
(TC 00:46:18) ((Peggy Pearl/St. Johnsbury History and Heritage Center: "I have a couple that comes in a couple times a week that are just wonderful volunteers and the board has out an incredible amount of time. You make sure you've got the banker, the real estate, you've got somebody that's done community relations and all those people work together on it. It's been a labor for all of us. 00:46:42)) Pearl is in talks to get local trade students to help do renovations and upgrades at the summer street property where the new heritage center will be located.

((Running NAT)) This super-fast youngster won the race with Supercow not far behind. And even after the race is over, these superheroes will ditch the fortress of solitude and hope to save the world -- one mentorship, one helping hand, one united way at a time. Alex Apple.
