Our neighbour killed our dog. Then the criminal justice system failed her and our family

When a neighbour killed our dog, my partner was just steps behind her. He heard our dog, whose name was Maybe, barking and then a gunshot. He rounded the corner to find our neighbour walking out from the bush, a rifle at his side. My partner asked our neighbour if he had seen Maybe, and our neighbour calmly stated that he had just watched her run toward our house. We spent the next two weeks searching our small community of Savary Island in deep snow.
