Muzzle Your Dog--Or Else

They did not mess around with un-muzzled dogs in Hyde Park, Illinois in 1886.

Date: Saturday, May 1, 1886  

Paper: Hyde Park Herald (Chicago, IL) --obtained on Genealogybank.com 

I discovered this little gem while searching Chicago area newspapers on Genealogybank.com for references to a relative of my wife who was a Chicago policeman.

Apparently your dog could be on the street of Hyde Park in 1886, but there better be a muzzle on it.
