Question about possible cougar sighting in Illinois.

If this or any other cougars get spotted again, why will it most likely be shot & killed? How many cougars have already been killed here? Like 3, 4?

Why can't we just (supervise our pets and then) turn a blind eye to it? I'm guessing there are probably even more cougars running around than we even know about. They are just doing their thing and trying to live. Why do we have to kill them?

Ask ChicagoNow: What is the best breakfast place in Chicago?

    VIDEO: Wicker Park Robbery Video Provides Another Learning Moment
    The latest North Side robbery alert from Chicago Police focuses on three incidents reported Friday in Wicker Park. But everyone can learn by watching surveillance video of one of the hold-ups. One of the best ways to train your gut instinct is to learn how street criminals operate. Around 12:45 p.m.

  • This is good advice, because most of us don't notice cars coming and going into alleys. They got a good look at the robber, he's probably a teen from one of the highschools, and I guess one of the teachers or principals will recognize him.

    No thanks.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    In New Orleans a hot dog.."fully dressed" as they call it, has only 3 ingredients: chili, onions and mustard.

    It's the standard down there but not adhered to the way we have the Chicago style Hot Dog, more variation.

    They are more into Po Boy sandwiches down there, and who can blame them.
