Justice for Bear-Bear

We just heard a shocking story about the death of Bear-Bear, a husky in the USA who was shot and killed by an off-duty officer at a neighbourhood dog park. Apparently the officer thought that Bear-Bear was attacking his German Shepherd while the person with Bear-Bear said they were playing. We all know that huskies have a very physical manner of playing, and it could have been an unfortunate misunderstanding. No matter what happened, it's distressing to hear that someone resorted to a firearm. You can read more about the story here:

There is a petition to have the case taken seriously (the police quickly closed the investigation saying there was no criminal activity) which can be found at:


  1. Guns and stuff.. I'm so scared of guns, poor Bear-Bear!

    I enjoy the husky way of play though! The poor fellow, hopefully the policemen take it seriously

  2. Wee have heard this story and it just makes us sick. The only good thing we can report is that it sounds like they are reopening the investigation after a lot of pressure was put on them. But the man that did this is just disgusting.

  3. Thank you!
    Thank you!!
    Thank you!!!
