Coyote Sighting?

Did anyone else catch a glimpse of the coyote (?) running down Clybourn Ave this morning around 7:45 AM?

I was driving to work, heading South on Clybourn, and had just crossed over Ashland when I saw, what I thought was a coyote sprinting full-speed in the opposite direction. It was running on the sidewalk straight towards the busy Ashland / Fullerton / Clybourn intersection. As a dog owner, this has me concerned. Any other sightings?

  • My kids and I trailed one for a few blocks around Wells and Goethe last Thursday. It got chased by a German Shepard in the Franklin Fine Arts playlot on Wells and disappeared into the night. I called 311, but there is no way the response time of the animal control unit is fast enough to catch a coyote on the run.

  • Wendi on Maud Interested in local news

    Yes, I've seen it many times on Clybourn and in the alley behind our house on Maud....hunting for rats.

My dog was looking for a place to urinate at the corner of Webster and Clifton, when suddenly a guy walked up to her with his dog without asking. His dog is approx. 40-50 lbs. and looks like an Australian shepherd - border collie mix. The dogs were sniffing each other and out of nowhere his dog grabbed onto my dog's back and shook her back and forth like she was a piece of meat (she's a beagle and weighs 22 lbs). Initially I didn't see any blood and the guy left. However she was clearly in pain when we got inside and that's when I saw she had giant puncture wounds in her back and needed to go to the emergency vet. Please keep your eye out for this dog. It looks like an Australian shepherd - border collie mix. I wish he knew the pain and suffering he has caused my dog.

  • The owner was probably in his late 20's/early 30's, light brownish blonde hair, thin build, and on the taller side... I think the dog might have been older. I hope that helps? The dog looked just like this one http://imgur.com/XzBTsK0

Oz Park Toilets

Dear Aldermistress Smith: More than hundreds of people in Oz Park this beautiful Friday afternoon having a wonderful spring outing. Some of us looked for places to eliminate only to find bushes to squat in that were next to the children's playgrounds. Won't you please plant some scrubs away from children area or ask the city to provide some portable toilets??

  • oz neighbor 32 years in LP

    Please thank the Park district for the porta pottis. They put them in the Park every spring in time for the kids baseball season.
    Ms Smith had nothing to do with this, the Park supervisor got them put in. Oh I forgot, one more thing for Smith to take credit for that she didn't do!

  • O V

    I apologize in advance if the post was meant to be funny to bring attention to the fact there need to be porter potties in the park to eliminate the 'bush squatting'. It's just that being a resident of this wonderful city and seeing people 'eliminate' themselves anywhere they please (including a playground across the street from my house), it wouldn't surprise me if you were serious about it.

Saving the Black Duck and preserving the historic Halsted Willow Gateway to the Sheffield Historic District is a worthy cause. DNA's article on the the history of Chicago Magic and the Black Duck exemplifies the many hidden gems that are often lost. Thanks DNA.

    Tell Alderman Smith how you feel. If you want to save the Black Duck grill,
    start patronizing it for a meal or snack.But do it fast. Dan Allen wants to stay.
    Anyone remember when RJ Grunts on the Park was going to close?
    Lines down the block made Melman keep it open ...now it's going strong
