America's Dog's scrap book consists of blood, guts and tragedy

If that unknown happens to be discovered he will be furnished with one of the choicest cells in the jail, and when released he will be allowed to give burial to the worthless carcass of the pet brute.

Officer Coleman again seized the brute by the throat and this time choked him until his eyes bulged out and his frothy tongue hung between his ugly teeth.
"Kill him, kill him!" cried the crowd that gathered. "The dog's mad!"

The San Francisco Call, April 15, 1897
