Dog Thieves on the Loose in 1909


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 11/30/1909.

Local sportsmen are having considerable trouble with dog thieves these days, last week the Glenville mail carrier stole a foxhound belonging to Crow Stump and the dog was traced to Grass run in Gilmer county, and found and it developed that the mail carrier, who is a product of the Buckeye State, had sold the dog to Frank Stalnaker; he has since recovered the money paid for the dog. Ira  Hardman's hounds taken to Gilmer county and left by a local boy, whether stolen or not we do not know, but it took a man two or three days to locate them and bring them in.  The dogs were assessed at $50 apiece as personal property, and the person stealing them is liable to indictment for a felony, but we do not think any action will be taken in the matter.
