EDWARDS (AP) - A dog's death in a hunting accident earlier this month has led to calls for warning signs in Eagle County about hunting season and dog safety.

The dog, a chocolate Lab named Crowley, was shot and killed while hiking with his owner's roommate earlier this month. The shooter, Lee Jensen of Wisconsin, has been charged with criminal mischief and recklessly discharging a firearm.

Crowley's owner, Dave Perron, tells the Vail Daily that since Crowley's death offers have poured in to erect some sort of memorial to the pup, along with a warning for dog owners to use caution during hunting season.

The local Humane Society and a hunting group, Safari Club International, have offered to help pay for the warning signs.
