We want to get the truth out and show our support for Baby Girl’s adoptive family. We want to let the media know that putting false information out there is NOT okay. Spread the word!
This is information from the brother of the owner of Baby Girl, who was on the scene. He is the person who carried a bleeding Baby Girl into the vet, her intestines protruding from her belly.
The family had gone to the park to play on Saturday, April 6. During the outing, the play got out of hand for a couple of the family’s other dogs (not Baby Girl), and their owner was bitten while separating them. When the NYPD officers arrived, the situation had been resolved; that did not stop them from making it worse, however. In the ensuing confusion, a very scared Baby Girl made a run for the woods.
And that’s when the police officer shot her. In a public park. With families and children in the area. While she was terrified and running away. The horrific wounds on her body tell that tale very clearly.
The police officer expected that she would die, and they would have a report to file instead of a problem to deal with.
Baby Girl did not die. The police found her, grievously wounded, bleeding profusely.
So they hid her in an ESU truck and lied about her whereabouts.
But Baby Girl did not die. The family discovered where she was hidden, and took her immediately to get help. The help she never should have needed, had she not been shot running AWAY from the danger the police officer represented. The help she never should have needed, had she been aided instead of covered up by an irresponsible police officer who has been irresponsible in the past, yet still on the job with a gun she can’t seem to keep up with or use properly. Oh, and just to make things more confusing, an off-
The evidence is plain; it is written in the entrance and exit wounds that tore through Baby Girl’s body. These are not wounds caused by Baby Girl charging the officer, as was lied. Quite the opposite, she was needlessly shot – for sport? For excitement? Because the officer over-
If this isn’t stopped, who will be their next victim?

On behalf of the family, S.N.A.R.R. is asking for your positive thoughts and support for this sweet little girl. They told us that her best friend is a bunny rabbit, and that they miss her very much.

We have been advised that Baby Girl has undergone two surgeries, and her vet expenses are at $8,000.
The doctor called, the latest update from this morning is that she is stable, and more responsive. The doctors have lowered her pain meds and are inserting a feeding tube directly to Baby Girl's stomach to make sure no bacteria sits there to help avoid infection, which is their biggest concern at this point. No infection so far!

The surgeon said we still cannot be confident for at least a week due to infection, but he said it was miraculous she survived. When he first opened her up he thought there was nothing they could do. But he said it was amazing that the bullet hit 7 sections of intestines and bowels, but didn't hit any major organs otherwise. She is heavily sedated because they want her to just rest and heal.

From Pat : Baby Girl's bill is a little over $13,000 right now. But when I get there today I have to leave another $10,000 deposit. So we be at about $20,000. They are going to put an IV in her neck so she can get what she needs, because she wont keep food down. Her 50/50 is she will be like this for the rest of her life or she will walk out.
From Robin: Through your generosity, we have raised around $5,500.00 ... let's share share share! I have to go to NY on the 19th for a book interview and can't wait to show the family how much you all have raised for her!
