Dog Catcher Asphyxiates Canines With His Flivver
The Washington Herald
March 6, 1922
PATCHOGUE, L.I., March 5.—Henry Hallock, whose job it is to rid this village of stray dogs, has found another use for the old reliable flivver.
Local druggists were out of chloroform last week so he rigged up an airtight death chamber out of old boxes and turned the exhaust from his horseless carriage into it. The undesirable canines were quickly asphyxiated.
"Carbon monoxide poisoning is more effective and a much cheaper exterminative process than chloroforming," said Hallock today, in announcing his intention to continue the use of his unique death-dealing device for dogs.
