Bear, Hero Police Dog, Returns to Active Service

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.
