April 1, 1910: The Mississippi Valley Kennel Club dog show concludes with a demonstration of bloodhounds chasing an African American boy through the streets of St. Louis and trapping him in the coliseum. “The hounds, Fanney and Queen, are the same ones that captured the Negro murderer of Annie Pelley at Cairo, Ill., last November. The Negro was burned by a mob,” The Times says.
