Sometimes the oddest of stories hides in an array of daily "top" news stories. This one was found while searching through the Jackson Daily News, July 16, 1954 on microfilm:
We never found out how it ended! Were they able to successfully serve the warrant? Did the dog end up attacking the Deputy Constable resulting in a biting free-for-all between animal and human? What was the dog's name? So many questions left unanswered! It's amusing how they described the dog as "growling in an unfriendly manner." Have you ever heard of a dog that growled in a friendly manner? We'd sure like to know!
