Coyote On Metra Tracks

Just a heads up to everyone out there. I heard a howling noise right now, and even before I looked, I told my husband, "I bet that was a coyote." Sure enough, I looked out our door, and there was a coyote on the Metra tracks. This was near 54th and Cornell. So I guess they're venturing further south??? Is there anyone that I'm supposed to call and report this to, or is it just a case of letting them wander around? Worried for the little doggies around here.

    Coyotes generally run from humans. Make yourself look big by waving your arms and make a big sound and you will scare them off.

    They are interested in small rodents, not you. Rabies has not been an issue in Chicago in 50 years.

    Yes, be alert but don't over worry...

    Yes, be alert but don't over worry about rabies. Mace? I don't know. Doubt they will get close enough. As "Likes Toast" said, dogs are a much bigger issue.

    Do not let your cats outdoors! They can be targeted by coyotes, great horned owls, dogs, humans, cars, other cats and kids. Outdoor cats do not live as long as indoor cats. It's not like it used to be when cats could roam. Too dangerous, now.

  • There have been coyote sightings in Washington Park, Jackson Park and even in Harold Washington Park the last few years.
    They normally roam during the hours of darkness and avoid humans. If you see one wave your arms and they will move on.

The lawsuit stunned Ezra McCann, a retired Chicago firefighter who is at a loss as to how he could be sued for a chase he had no knowledge of until it unfolded in front of him in his yard at 4832 S. Dorchester Ave.

University police spotted the three girls just after midnight when they crashed the car in front of 4814 S. Dorchester Ave. while speeding the wrong way down the street, according to police reports.

“I don’t want them doing anything for me at 48th and Dorchester,” McCann said.

Why Are There No Security Cameras In The South Side Lakefront Underpasses

How do we get the city to put security cameras in and at the entrances to the underpasses south of 31st Street? All those lights are nice, but security cameras might deter some crime.

  • Early last summer, at the community meeting after the murder in the Iowa Building, Alderman Hairston indicated that there was cameras in the underpasses at 57th Street.
    It appears she had her facts wrong,
    Cameras should be installed in all of the underpasses on south Lake Shore Drive.
