A Rabid Reprieve

Mad Dog is Spared

Waco Times-Herald
July 1, 1914

A call for police to come to Ninth and Webster to kill a dog was received at the city hall last night. Officers Carlisle and Tonahill responded and found a terrier apparently suffering from rabies, and snapping viciously. The dog’s mistress, however, protested in tears against the dog being killed and the officers left it in her charge on condition that she would keep it locked up.
