A dog in Newark, New Jersey, tried to stop a trolley car by "seizing the edge of the fender in his teetth."  It seems that a policeman had put the dog's three-year old owner on the trolley, to take him to the police station. According to the story, the dog feared "his master was being kidnapped" and neither the operator nor a policeman could pry the dog from its prize. Source: Evening World (New York) 17 June 1901
