If you are referring the Dick turpin's mount, it could be through circumstances that Turdpin shot her...reluctantly...see below

Bonnie Black Bess

When blindness did guide me, I left my abode

When friends proved ungrateful, I took to the road

For to plunder the wealthy and relieve my distress

I bought you to aid me, my bonnie Black Bess.

How nobly you stood, when a coach I have shook

And the gold and the silver from its inmates I took

No poor man did I plunder or ever yet oppress

No widow, no orphan, my bonnie Black Bess

O'er hills and o'er valleys, through glens I rode you

From London to Yorkshire, like lightning you flew

No toll bars could halt you as rivers I breast

In twelve hours you reached it, my bonnie Black Bess.

Hark! the bloodhounds are howling and bugles loud sound

But the likes of my noble will never be found.

To part with you now it does me oppress

But my hand shall not waver, my bonnie Black Bess.

As the ages roll onward, and I'm dead and gone

This tale will be told from father to son

And some they will pity, while others confess

Through friends I shot you, my bonnie Black Bess

No one will dare say that ingratitude dwelt

In the breast of Dick Turpin, 'twas a vice he never felt

I'll die like a man, and soon be at rest

Then farewell forever, my sweet bonnie Black Bess.
