This is an interesting moment. Montag can see the chase unfold through windows by looking at people's televisions. He sees the hound stop at his lawn and charge on. The city is rivited to this chase unfolding as entertainment for the masses. This would probably make Montag feel the surrealistic nature of his own existence and the absurdness of life. People interpret everything the way they are told to interpret by the media. Individual critical thought is all but vanished. They even accept Montag's "death" which really is the death of some oblivious homeless man.
