For the third time in the last nine months, a pack of dogs have killed cats in the 2400 block of Lake Shore Drive. A total of six cats are now dead. These dogs were three or four in number and run at night and early morning. They belong to someone, as at least one had a collar. The dogs are medium in size and brown, though perhaps one could be white in color.

We do not blame the dogs; we blame their owners who do not follow city ordinances regarding keeping them in an enclosure at night so they can do no harm. More important than a broken law, though, are the broken hearts of two children who loved them very much.

Please keep your dogs under control. Readers, please report loose dogs in the neighborhood to the police department.
