    That area is a paradise compared to what it used to be. It's better now, and getting better all the time. Not that long ago it was inconceivable to imagine the Bloomingdale Trail. Those tracks were a common spot for gang members to shoot at police and rival gang members....

Those tracks were a common spot for gang members to shoot at police and rival gang members. It was difficult to patrol because police cars couldn't get through the brush and navigate the rail road tracks. Whenever there was a shooting, the CPD had to get up there on foot,many blocks away. and work their way to the scene from opposite directions.

Lost Dog on Wabansia @ Rockwell

Saw this smaller size female pittie girl running south in the alley between Rockwell and Maplewood at Wabansia. She looks to be a stray for some time as she is super skittish and skinny. Came up to me when I got down to her level but was shaking and very scared. Tried to catch her but had no leash and she took off when she heard birds. Probably lingering around Maplewood Park. Really hope she finds her way home :(

    A lot of people simply don't know any better when it comes to their pets. spay/neuter and microchipping have only become popular in the last 20 years or so, and many people still think "well, the dog we had growing up roamed the neighborhood and rarely went to the vet, and he was just fine!" (see for example the number of people on EB who still have indoor/outdoor cats). Educating the owners in a polite and understanding way is the way to help the dog. Stealing the dog will just result in them getting a new one.

  • Agreed. I am happy to talk with the owners but there is a language barrier there with me.
