Jul 07, 1879 Six Year Old Chicago Girl Attacked by Leashed Savage Bulldog

Chicago - While Mary Koch, the 6 year old daughter of a widow living at 264 West Chicago avenue, was playing on the praire in the rear of the house at 11 o'clock yesterday morning some fellow came by leading a savage bulldog which sprang on the little one and bit her on the left arm.  Dr. Bosn says the injury is not dangerous, but there's no knowing where these things will end.  The fellow with the dog ran south on North Center avenue and escaped.
