WANATKA DOGS DILLINGER 1934

Nan Wanatka, wife of the proprietor of the Little Bohemia roadhouse near Mercer, Wisc., is shown with her dogs, who unwittingly saved the day for John Dillinger and his gang when federal agents swooped down on the house, April 23, 1934. The dogs began to bark as the agents approached and Dillinger machine gunners hurried to their posts and began firing at the officers. The gang then leaped out a window and escaped to the woods nearby. Dogs are named Prince and Spot. (AP Photo)
