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?

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    I always enjoy witnessing a good dose of karma. Im waiting for a few people to go to hell too. Everyone dies. Some deserve to die before others. I absolutely dont know if this is the case here but everyone who dies isnt a saint. Horrible human beings get whats coming to them sometimes. Again no clue if thie person was a horrible human being. Its taboo to talk ill of the dead. Not sure why its ok before they are dead but that seems to be the norm.

    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.

    This 2-bedroom in 3500 N. Greenview in the Southport neighborhood of Lakeview recently came on the market. It's a high first floor unit in a vintage building which was converted into condos during the housing boom in 2005. This is a corner unit with south and east exposures.

  • Mute, I so agree with you. We are in a vintage 6 flat (100 Yrs+) and you can hear everything.
    Being considerate in buildings like this is critical to everyone being able to enjoy their apartment as much as possible, given the sound constraints.i
    Everyone has to play nice or your apartment can be a nightmare.

  • Mute Truth is not determined by majority vote

    I would never buy in a building that is shared with so many others. Your chances of running into problems gets higher with the amount of occupants.people are too oblivious to others. I dont want to buy unless its a single family home.

DEAR ALL:
We have a situation. I have been specifically targeted for vandalism and it concerns me that it is related to the muggings of November 8th.
On January 4th at 9:52pm a car drove up and parked across the street from our house on Clarendon (exactly where the mugging and beating took place on November 8th). At 9:54:50pm a young man gets out of his car and walks down our street, at 9:55:45pm he returns to his car, at 9:57:02pm he gets back out of his car, heads straight to my classic 1997 Camaro parked in front of my house on Hutchinson, pulls out a large knife tool, and destroys the passenger side of my Camaro. I have it all on tape but unfortunately he was well covered with hoodie including his face, and the cameras could not pick up the license plate number.
I have a strong suspicion that this is in retaliation from my involvement of the muggings.
I am in contact with the lead detective on the muggings case to see how to proceed.
Let's keep an eye out please.

Breakfast/brunch suggestions for East Lakeview

I was so happy to find Horizon cafe after Melrose closed down last year for just a good, affordable breakfast with no frills. I was heartbroken to go out in the cold this morning for breakfast at Horizon to find it’s doors permanently closed.
Do any of you have good east Lakeview suggestions for breakfast/brunch? I’m not a huge fan of Anne Sathers or Stella’s Diner and Yolk tends to be a huge wait with sometimes a lack of space to hang out indoors while waiting.
