SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) - A North Idaho man said his dog was shot on a Forest Service road last weekend by a teen who mistook the husky-malamute cross for a wolf.

The Spokane Spokesman-Review reports (https://is.gd/jU4g4R ) the dog later died. The same bullet struck Jim Rosauer’s second dog, which survived.

Rosauer says the dogs had run ahead of him and his wife when they were hiking last Sunday afternoon on the snow-covered road to Spruce Lake, which is near the Montana border.

They saw a couple and their 19-year-old son about 180 yards away with a gun. The man apologized to Rosauer and said he told his son to shoot the wolf.

Boundary County Sheriff Greg Sprungl confirmed that the shooting is under investigation, but said no charges have been filed.
