Justice For Bear-Bear!

An off-duty cop shot and killed a three-year-old husky named Bear-Bear while it was running off leash and playing with a German Shepherd inside a dog park.

The Baltimore Sun reports:

When the dogs began to play roughly — the federal officer asked Bear-Bear’s guardian, his owner’s brother, to call off the dog. But before he could do anything, the officer pulled out a gun and shot Bear-Bear.

Originally, authorities stated that they wouldn’t be charging the police officer who shot and killed Bear-Bear.  Public outcry, however, resulted in the case being reopened.  A full investigation is now underway.  [source]

Sadly, this is not the first time someone carrying a gun decided to shoot a husky while it was playing outside.  Siouxsie’s post on the SLAPP Happy Dog Shooter is at this link.

On a brighter note, here is a link to the most adorable husky video ever.

  1. Your blog makes me think that this most be a common problem for Huskies.

  2. Your blog makes me think that people should have control of their dogs and stop blaming the fact that animals can get aggressive on the people forced to take action.

  3. As someone who recently lost a pet to the brutal use of indiscriminant deadly force by police, I am truly sorry for you and yours. Here is the story of our Boyd, we all need to support each other to help make a change. http://www.facebook.com/justiceforboyd
