may 10 1910: rabbit vs. dog

A news item from that day in the New York Times:
A pet white rabbit, fleeing for its life, ran under the body of a moving trolley
car in Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, yesterday. A collie dog in hot
pursuit tried to follow, and was ground to pieces under the rear trucks.
After the dog's death John Hendrickson, a storekeeper, picked up the rabit
(sic), exhausted.

That poor dog.
