Description

NYC Parks commissioner Henry Stern & Parks Enforcement Comm. Jack Lyn arranged this ceremony to honor Parks SAR K-9 Bear and Parks Capt. Scott Shields his handler. Video taken 9/11/02 of First battalion Scots Guard as they honor Bear. It was to be his last public appearance. Right after this ceremony Bear was rushed in critical condition to the hospital. It is appropriate that the Scots Guard were the last to honor Bear as a year earlier, just after 9/11/01 NYC Parks Enforcement Commisioner Jack Linn had arranged for Bear to be honored by the Guards at St John the Devine. They were the first and the last to honor him. A few months later after Bear passed they wrote a Bagpipe song to honor him again. There is now a pipe song in the British Army to honor Bear; it is appropriately named, 'Lament to the Golden Bear' God bless them all!
