DOGCATCHERS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
They are often portrayed in movies as heartless fiends who take poor, unsuspecting dogs from their houses in the dead of night. Cartoons often portray them as simple-minded folks who are outwitted by extraordinarily cunning dogs. Certainly neither portrayal is accurate. But why are dogcatchers so demonized?
There have been dogcatchers in the United States since the 18th century; perhaps even earlier. One of their functions was to pick up dogs that appeared to be rabid or vicious. The public appreciated that role, but it was a difficult and often dangerous one for the dogcatcher.
