Butch Spear, former president of the Vermont Bearhound Association, was legally training a pack of bear hounds near Groton State Forest with friends when they were confronted by an angry anti-hunter in the road.
Spear said the woman walked into the public road to block him from passing, and then pepper sprayed he and his friends after a heated exchange of words.
“My first words to her were to ask her to get out of the road,” says Spear. “She told me to go F myself and a bunch of other things.”
As you can imagine, things escalated quickly from there.
In the end, Vermont Fish & Wildlife game wardens cited Liza Nanni, 61, for interferring with a hunter, simple assault, and disorderly conduct. She will appear in court September 26th in Caledonia County Superior Court.
