—FLASH: Shooting of #SoldierDog #MajorMike sparks outrage–and support for Sgt. Matthew Bessler

In W.P. Norton on October 19, 2015 at 6:16 pm

Mike, the veteran was dog who helped his handler win two Bronze Stars, survived two tours in Iraq, only to be shot by a man with a gun strapped to his bicycle.

Mike was shot in the back and did not die instantly, the sheriff’s office told the Washington Post. And the shooter’s not talking–yet. Get the whole story from Sarah Kershaw’s account in today’s Post.

Is #MajorMike America’s Cecil the Lion? Some think so–and others wonder if the Park County Sheriff’s Office is telling the whole story.

Reportedly shot in the back Oct. 10, it seems this gentle Belgian Malinois was safer in the dessert than thee little town of Powell, Wyo.

“Bless Sgt. Matthew Bessler. His old and new friends will help him through this devastating time. Major Mike’s funeral will be a national event, I am certain.” — Wang Kun

“I hope the overwhelmingly positive response from friends and strangers will help to soften Sgt. Bessler’s loss. Eventually the shooter’s identity will become public knowledge, and like the coward that shot “Cecil the Lion”, he can deal with the deserved public outcry, even if he is lucky enough to evade charges. Hope he has a rear view mirror. RIP Mike.”  — dc777
