Despite the chill, Freya, a red-colored pit bull, relentlessly chased a red ball three times the size of her head in her play yard. While Freya was happy to be outside with her favorite toy, her tail wagging as she threw up gravel and dirt, the Onondaga County Department of Correction sat just on the other side of the chain-linked fence.
