Bear The Police Dog Leaves Animal Hospital

Comments Off on Bear The Police Dog Leaves Animal Hospital

A New York City police dog that heroically broke up a subway fight last week was honoured while leaving the animal hospital Wednesday. An honour guard of police officers and police dogs lined up and welcomed Bear back to the force.

Last Tuesday morning Bear and his handler, Officer Vincent Tieniber, came to the aid of another officer who was attempting to break up a fight between four women on a subway platform.

Ninety-nine percent of the time, when we come to the scene, people cooperate,” said Tieniber. “No one really wants to be bit by a dog.”

Unfortunately one of the women was extremely uncooperative. In the scuffle Bear was kicked in the mouth as she resisted arrest. Bear did not let this stop him from getting the job done. When the women kicked at Bear a second time he clamped down on her foot until she was handcuffed.

The ordeal left Bear with several broken teeth, a cut up tongue and a swollen snout.

On Wednesday he was able to leave the animal hospital and when he did he was greeted by his fellow NYPD K-9 officers. Bear will require a few more weeks of rest and treatment, but will make a full recovery and return to work once he is recovered.

The woman responsible for kicking Bear is facing several charges, including injuring a police animal.

Jaris Update: Man who Threw Dog From Window Gets Prison Time

Comments Off on Jaris Update: Man who Threw Dog From Window Gets Prison Time

Back in April we brought you the story of Jaris, the Belgian malinois police dog that was thrown from a second-story window by a parolee refusing to surrender. 

We are please to tell you that the man has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Police had arrived at the Fontana, California home of Brian Bills, who had violated his parole.  The woman who answered the door claimed he was not home, but police saw him trying to escape out of an upstairs window.  He refused to comply, so a K-9 was sent after him.  Jaris lunged toward the man, and using the dog’s forward momentum, Bills propelled him out the window.

“Jaris was not able to stop himself and fell to the concrete below,”police explained.

Miraculously, Jaris survived.  But after landing on his head, his nose was bleeding and he was staggering, so he was immediately rushed to an emergency veterinarian.  He has suffered some nerve damage between his brain and sinuses, but after spending enough time recuperating, Jaris returned to work.

Bills continued to resist arrest even after Jaris’ shocking plummet to the ground.  He was caught and pleaded guilty to one count each of resisting a peace officer and intentional injury to a police dog.  Today he was sentenced to three years in prison.  Yes, we know – not nearly long enough.

TROY — Officers, responding to a domestic disturbance late Wednesday, found a dog so emaciated its hip bones were protruding through its skin, police said.

The dog had to be euthanized and a father and son who live at 16 Park Ave. faced multiple charges Thursday morning in City Court, Capt. John Cooney said. “Lets hope those charges mean that poor dog didn’t suffer & die for nothing…these people need a good slap & learn that animal abuse is a crime & won’t be tolerated…nice looking pair aren’t they…not faces you will forget in a hurry I hope??”

According to police reports, when patrol-men answered a report of a disturbance at the home at 11:50 p.m., they saw a German shepherd dog lying in the middle of the living room floor and unable to walk. Sam Gallo at the Capital District Animal Emergency Clinic said the animal was emaciated, anaemic  had penetrating ulcers on its body, and that both of the animal’s rear hip bones were penetrating its skin and visible.

Police said that as officers investigated they discovered John Ferrara Jr., 26, and John Ferrara Sr., 59, who live at the home, were intoxicated. They became uncooperative when officers asked to search the residence to determine if there were other neglected animals or people in harm’s way, police said.

The two suspects then resisted arrest and wrestled with officers, police said. They were both charged with resisting arrest, obstruction of governmental administration and cruelty to animals. Ferrara Sr. faces an additional charge of harassment, police said.

Both were arraigned Thursday in City Court. John Ferrara Sr. was sent to the Rensselaer County Jail on $5,000 bail and his son on $2,500 bail.

Ferrara Jr. was treated at Samaritan Hospital for injuries he received during the struggle with police.

Man, 28, arrested for having sex with pet dog Mimi which was ‘whimpering in pain’

Comments Off on Man, 28, arrested for having sex with pet dog Mimi which was ‘whimpering in pain’

A man was arrested for having sex with his pet dog Mimi after a witness told police he saw him penetrate the canine, which was said to be whimpering in pain.

Jenson Bolla-Sosa, 28, of Fort Lauderdale, was charged with knowingly having sexual contact with a dog, cruelty to an animal and resisting arrest without violence.

The witness who saw the act taking place took the dog from the Guatemalan native before calling police.

When he appeared in Broward County court, Judge John Hay considered denying the 28-year-old bail, the Sun Sentinel reported.

But assistant public defender Terry Conover said Bolla-Sosa had no prior record and should be granted bail, which was then set at $12,500.

Mr Conover said at the hearing: ‘We have serious cases in here, Judge, that involve the abuse of women or the abuse of men, of human beings, and they are able to post bond.

The facts of this case are not good. But comparing it to the abuse of a human being is not as significant.’

Judge Hurley disagreed and said: ‘I think abuse of an animal in certain circumstances can be just as significant and troubling.’

Bolla-Sosa is also being held for an investigation by the Immigration and Naturalization Service, according to the affidavit.
