Thursday, April 6, 1876, Dubuque Daily Times (Dubuque, Iowa) Page: 8

Tuesday night about eleven o’clock, Thomas Faherty heard a noise in the stable at his residence on 3d Street Hill. Supposing that some thief was prowling about in search of something to confiscate, he took his revolver and went to investigate. On opening the stable door something rushed towards him as if to escape. He emptied all the chambers of his revolver, and then procured a light, which revealed to him the corpus of a “varmint,” which from the description we have of it we take to be a badger, not a two-legged representative from our neighbor State, but one of the original family.
