Peterson of Fairview Avenue, was bitten by a dog which had since been killed. In this latter case, however, it was not believed that the dog was rabid but to be certain, the head had been sent to Ithaca for examination. The other dog, believed to have been mad, followed a delivery wagon into the city on Baker Street. The driver of the wagon became alarmed at the actions of the animal and called for assistance. C. J. L. Sundberg shot and killed the dog. The shot damaged the head so badly that it could not be sent away for examination. This dog had a collar, marked from Erie County, Pa. It was a shepard dog, three-quarters grown.
