"My Dog," Says County Auditor
Bowbells, N.D., Aug 5.—"That's my dog," exclaims Deputy County Auditor Lawrence Kopriva, when he was presented with the hide of an animal which J.W. Moore had taken for a coyote and shot.
The dog was a purebred Scotch collie. Mr. Moore noticed the animal several rods away and, getting his Winchester rifle, shot it.
He had it on display in front of a local store for a time, and then decided to collect the bounty on it from the county auditor.
