On Friday last, Claudie Booth, while playing and gathering flowers near the Catholic church with some of her playmates, got near the kennel of Nick Sellinske’s dog, when the dog jumped and grabbed her hand, lacerating both front and back in a frightful manner.
If the dog had been loose or the child nearer the kennel there is not telling how badly she might have been hurt.
There is not sense of anybody keeping as savage a dog as that in this country, or any other, for that matter, but as he keeps him chained up at home, we suppose he has a right to.
