June 26 (Bloomberg) -- Bear is back. The German shepherd returned to active service today after recuperating at the Animal Medical Center in New York.

Like the proverbial dog with a bone, Bear would not detach from the foot of a woman who kicked him twice while resisting arrest.

Bear, who clamped down until she was handcuffed, suffered broken teeth and a swollen snout from the tussle.

A row of police dogs and their handlers waited outside the Medical Center as Bear, a six year old with a tragic mien, left the building accompanied by his human companion, Officer Vincent Tieniber.

Muse highlights include Hephzibah Anderson on Jeffery Archer; Scott Reyburn on London art auction.
