Jan 08, 1909 Vicious Urbana Bulldog Seriously Mauls a Valuable Shepherd
Urbana - A valuable Shepherd dog belonging to William Manning was attacked by a bull dog on Market street Wednesday evening, and it was up to a police officer to appear on the scene with his revolver to end the fray.
The Shepherd dog was badly chewed up, and to cap the climax a heartless driver ran over the struggling animals with his wagon. The Manning dog was shot to end its misery.
