Ferocious Canine Belonging to Painter at Work on West, Springfield Avenue Bites Mrs. Hank
Urbana - Mrs. Fredrika Hank, aged mother of Mrs. Carrie Busch, 411 West Main street, was attacked by a savage bulldog on West Springfield avenue about 5 o'clock Wednesday evening, but fortunately escaped with slight injury. The animal which belongs to a painter at work on the residence occupied by J.C. Duncan, 709 West Springfield avenue, was lying on the walk in front of the Duncan home when Mrs. Hank passed. The dog spran at her, its teeth tearing through her heavy skirts and lacerating one of her limbs. The owner interfered in time to prevent the beast from pulling her down.
