WJA, ABC7 News out of Washington, DC has named Keith Shephard as the officer who shot Bear-Bear on Monday night. Bear-Bear was a Siberian Husky who was playing in a community dog park when Shephard, allegedly fearing for his life, shot the husky in defense.Police Withhold Name of Officer Who Shot Dog
We wants to know why Keith Shephard carried a GUN to a dog park?
We wants to know why he didn't simply LEAVE, if he felt he was in danger?
We wants to know why he MURDERED Bear-Bear?
And we wants to know why police prevented Bear-Bear's person from going to him and rendering aid and comfort. We wants to know why they threatened to taser him?
The fact that the dog was left on the ground for 20 minutes, bleeding out, and the owner was being threatened with a taser for trying to get to him... Well, it makes me question authority. The officers in charge of that scene should be charged with negligence and animal cruelty. Why could no one take the dog to a vet immediately? They don't leave human suspects on the ground like that.
More from Bear-Bear's family on his death
This terrible tragedy has reminding Mommy of a horrible MURDER that happened right in front of her when she was a teenager. Mommy was walking home from her friends house when she saw a Border Collie that she thought was Sir Lass. She called the doggie and it was coming to her when Mr McCarter shot and killed it. It's blood got all over Mommy and the police didn't do anything to this monster because he was a Fireman. Even after Mommy calmed down and realized it wasn't Sir Lass she was still mad as a hornet. The doggie was very sweet and loving and she didn't do anything wrong. She was in the road and had never been in Mr. McCarter's yard, but he MURDERED her and got away with it cause people said "it was just a dog" and Mommy was too young to do anything about it. But Doggie, Mommy never forgot you and she prays you are happy at the rainbow bridge. And Doggie Mommy thinks you probably saved Sir Lasses life because Mr. McCarter was drinking and just waiting to shoot a dog. He had his female dog that was in heat tied up in the yard to attract male doggies. Mommy knows he wasn't punished for killing you but Mommy thinks he was probably warned not to shoot anymore doggies, so you probably saved a lot of doggies lives. Mommy just wishes there had been things like FB back then so maybe she could have contacted other dog lovers and gotten justice for you Doggie. (Mommy knew the dog and where she lived, Mommy often stopped to visit with her when she was taking Sir Lass for a walk).
