Amber Barnes Wiki – Amber Barnes  Bio

Amber Barnes was a Montana woman who sparked outrage after posting photos of a Siberian husky puppy she killed and skinned, thinking it was a wolf and has been charged with animal cruelty.

Amber Barnes received a citation on the misdemeanor charge after she fatally shot the 6-month-old cub and posted graphic images of her remains on Facebook of her, bragging that she had killed a young wolf.


Amber Barnes died at the age of 36 years old.

Shot & Killed By Skinned Husky Puppy

An investigation of the footage, which shows Barnes smiling and clutching a rifle while posing with the animal’s fur, led the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office to issue the citation, NBC Montana reported.

Barnes pleaded not guilty on Friday, according to the outlet.

She was cited for the misdemeanor, rather than being charged with the felony because investigators believed they could prove negligence but not the intent, the sheriff’s office told the station.

Barnes’s post claiming she took down a “predatory wolf pup” immediately drew a backlash from animal lovers online, many of whom were quick to point out that the animal she killed was not a wolf.

One Twitter user fumed: “Amber Rose here hunted, shot & SKINned a HUSKY…not a wolf, an obvious #HUSKY. She also worries me that she calls him “cub” because she thinks it’s okay for her to hunt young animals, which, as you know, is not good for the ecosystem of an area. #revokeyourlicence.”

Another chimed in: “Why aren’t more people talking about Amber Rose Barnes catching, shooting, and then skinning a husky because she ‘thought she was a wolf’ and didn’t even have a wolf tag.”

Barnes eventually admitted that she made a mistake, writing, “Yes, I made a mistake because I thought she was a hybrid wolf pup.” She still maintained that he shot her in self-defense, claiming that the animal was growling and approaching her as if to “eat” her.

The pup was one of 18 husky and herding dogs abandoned near Doris Creek in the Flathead National Forest in mid-September, the sheriff’s office told NBC Montana.

The other abandoned dogs that were found were taken to the Flathead County Animal Shelter for recovery and have since been put up for adoption.
