8 Bullets for Wiggle Butt: The Tragic Tale of How a Chicago Nanny Dog Failed His Real World Temperment Test
"She did not notice how the wicked little eyes, red with rage, watched her. Yvonne came nearer and stooped for the ball. With a spring like a wild animal the dog was upon her. The massive jaws closed with terrific force on the baby's head and bore her to the ground, where the brute tore at the tiny form as if mad. Despite beatings showered on it and bullets fired into its body, it clung to its prey. At the eighth bullet the infuriated animal fell lifeless, but an iron bar was necessary to pry loose the cruel white teeth from their death grip."
"The bulldog had not been regarded as vicious and always had been friendly with the children."
Richmond Planet August 26, 1905
