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,...

    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.

Murder on 2500 Block of W. Moffat

This is disturbing. I live on the block and walked past that area minutes before it was reported. I wish there was more information, was it a break in? Did the woman reside on the block or was it a random act of murder? The block is generally quiet and right down street from children's park. There needs to be some follow up and community briefing/comment from authorities. Does anyone know when next CAPS meeting is?

Odd activity at 2429 W Cortland?

I've noticed a lot of comings and goings at this address and money exchanged as people leave. There is also a girl sitting on the front porch--it may be different girls or the same one--at almost all hours. It feels sketchy, but I can't put my finger on it. Brothel? Drug den? Nothing to worry about? Any ideas are appreciated.

  • Please call Joe Morenos office and file a 311 on line complaint. There are a number of people from the block doing so.

  • Ap

    Kelly, I will file the online complaint. Do you know if we have a "text tree" for our block?
