Since ihe tattoo marts cannot be removed except by disfiguring rhe dog, the program is expected to play an important part in preventing theft of the animals. The tattooing process consists of shaving the dog's ear, .applying an anesthetic and then stamping the mark under the skin with a special instrument. Owners are charged 25 cents for each clog registered in this manner. "A lot of people think we in lure the dogs, but we do not harm them in the least," said Oscar Nieskes. one of the originators of the plan. "The dogs don't mind i: In the least, and do not even whimper. Once the mark i.s there it Is on forever." In addition to Nieskes, two other i Milwaukee dog fanciers, James Kakat-sch and Paul Freitag. aided in launching the program. Law authorities throughout the state have been notified of the identification bureau so that they can aid in returning lost or stolen dogs .bearing .the tattoo numbers. For -administration" purposes. Wisconsin has been divided into nine districts with all of the records to be filed in a central bureau here. Many of the dogs owned by the members of the Wisconsin Amateur Field Trial Club were tattooed about a year ago and the markings have proved helpful.
