Beautifully illustrated reports of Russian Imperial Hunt in the reign of Nicholas II. In the list you can also see the thousands of annually shot dogs and cats.

I don’t understand… they hunted for dogs and cats and shot them or…?

I guess the dogs and cats were shot accidentaly but somewhat included in the list?

Well, in some way it was accidentally - he saw a dog or a cat or a crow and shot it. It was not a mistake or miss. In the first list the quantity of killed dogs is 294 and that of cats - 601. Emperors also hunted traditional beasts and birds (bears, dears etc).
