Dec 16, 1891 Chicago Pit Bull Owner Shoots Cat Owner

Chicago - Last October Willie Wohischlagen, who lives at Thirty-seventh street and Hoyne avenue, shot George Schelp of 380 Honore street, in the abdomen.  Willie's bulldog worried Scheip's cat and Schelp was chastising the dog's owner as an accessory.  Wohlschlagen was yesterday held in $1,000 bonds by Justice Lyon on a charge of assault with intent to kill.
