Take a look at this text:
"Dogs that stretch their circles far into the snow-covered winter forest are better kept on a leash on certain sections of the route. In winter, the game often stays in valleys near the feeding sites resting. The game has little chance to escape. The animals drive down their metabolism in winter and then have to drive it up for flight. This is extremely stressful for them."
I googled it and one of the meanings is "animals that are hunted for fun". This text is about cross-country skiing with your dog etiquette, so no relation to hunting. But, even if I accept "the game" to be wild animals, then why does it say "the game has little chance to escape"? It's the pet dog who would need to escape then. I'm very confused.
