Stolen Package

I had a package that was delivered to my house stolen. I just wanted to alert my neighbors and friends to be aware. This happened on west 55th Street near Melvina. I am making a Police Report.

  • Bob Stanek Lives across from Peck School, works at Argonne

    Happens all the time, everywhere. Now, when I expect a UPS or FedEx package, I go to their web page and say I will pick it up in person. I usually do Bedford Park, but you can have it sent to a local pickup place.

Pit Bulls on 59th Street off of Menard Avenue

My previous message was removed because the claim is I used an exact address. I was told to post it to the nearest intersection.

"If you walk dogs around 59th and Menard, please be careful as two pit bulls are released from the front door and allowed to roam the block, and run around off of the property. They are unleashed and the owner stands at the door. They will approach, but so far, they have retreated when called back....

My previous message was removed because the claim is I used an exact address. I was told to post it to the nearest intersection.

"If you walk dogs around 59th and Menard, please be careful as two pit bulls are released from the front door and allowed to roam the block, and run around off of the property. They are unleashed and the owner stands at the door. They will approach, but so far, they have retreated when called back. The person that commands the dogs appears to be a gang member in his mid-twenties. I see several people walking dogs in the area as they walk towards the railroad tracks. They are released several times per day, and always around 8 pm."

I was contacted through this forums private email function by somebody that claims to live at the address where the dogs live. She claims, "My animals are not aggressive, there are neighbors on the opposite end of the street who's large breed dogs roam freely without any hassle." In a separate email, she states, "my girls are not aggressive. They will no longer be off off a leash."

I hope that is true and that they are no longer off leash. I don't know enough about the breed other than what I read or see on TV when they attack. Famous last words of the owners whose dogs attack, "they never did that before." Anyway, it's rude and against city ordinance leash laws.

For the person that contacted me, I state "appears" to be a gang member. I cannot get too specific. She claims that I am "indecent" for posting the warning. Indecent is allowing two large pit bulls unleashed off property. I have not seen other large breed dogs roaming freely. I haven't been around the last few days, but if I see the dogs unleashed today, I will call 911. As previously stated, I have notified Animal Control, the Chicago Police Community Office and the alderman's office through his web form on the ward web page.

    It seems the simple solution is for dog owners to follow the ordinance and use a leash. If the woman that contacted you is aware that "neighbors on the opposite end of the street who's large breed dogs roam freely without any hassle" then those neighbors also need to be educated. Surely somebody on the block can have a conversation with them about pet safety and the law in Chicago. After that, everyone who is aware of the dogs running free should call it in when they observe it -- before someone gets hurt. A little cooperation goes a long way to peace in the neighborhood.

  • If the person is letting his dogs run wild then they are probably leaving their "droppings" on other neighbors lawns to clean up.
