From the Feb. 27, 1941 News Record:

A pale sober man walked into the sheriff’s office in Worland and pleaded: “I want you to come out into the country and kill my dog.” An officer departed with the man. They walked into the country and found the dog, a large Newfoundland suffering from an incurable dog disease. Neither man spoke. The officer pulled his gun, fired, and the dog dropped dead. Without speaking, the men returned to the courthouse. The man extended his hand to the officer. “Thanks,” he said. The officer looked down at his hand. In it was a five-dollar bill. The man had gone.
