Editor, A murder was committed in Midway. This murder did not involve a person but a loving, sweet Chihuahua, who was mauled and killed by four boxer/American bulldogs that escaped from their yard. She was bitten in the neck, side and abdomen. She was in great pain, and it was very difficult finding a veterinarian on Thanksgiving. She went into shock.
