"Pep, The Cat-Murdering Dog" was a black Labrador Retriever admitted to Eastern State Penitentiary in 1924. Prison folklore states that Governor G.Pinchot used his executive powers to sentence Pep to Life Without Parole for killing his wife’s cat. But the Governor told a different story. He said Pep had been sent to act as a mascot for the prisoners. Pep was much loved, and lived among the inmates for about a decade. The truth may never be known..
