Five Hours

The two big greyhounds which were raised by P. J. Troskey of this city and which have won the admiration of everyone who has seen them proved their worth Monday afternoon while out hunting coyotes with M. K. Dooley along the track east of town. Mr. Dooley had seen coyottes {sp} just east of town on several occasions and took a walk on Monday in quest of them. Only one of the varmints was sighted and he was made short work of. He had about a quarter of a mile start of the hounds, but the dogs caught up with him in less than two minutes. One dog took him by the throat and the other by the chest and in another minute he was a dead coyotte.{sp} This is the first wild animal of any kind that the dogs had anything to do with, but they did the business by natural instinct. After they get more experience they will be able to get the best of any coyote or wolf in the country.
