Injured goose

Does anyone know who to contact about a goose at belmont harbor missing a foot. It seems to be cast out of the group of geese all by itself.

I saw this yesterday but today saw just one in the water honking like it was in distress maybe the same one? Isnt it unusual for them to be aline?

  • It seems to be doing fine on its own already, and I’ve seen birds live that only had 1 foot.

  • Mute Mute Me

    I dont know anything about birds. I just know some animals alienate other animals who are weak or sick. This goose oftentimes would be alone while a large group of other geese would be all bunched up together not far away. I also would see a goose alone in the same area in the water honking wildly. Again i dont know if that means it was in distress or not.

    This morning my doorbell was to rung at 6:49am. Not first time. Who is doing it? Street paving crews who need cars moved so they can repave. I don't own a car! Why not put up a sign the day before, now the trucks are honking to get attention of a couple of people who own cars to move them. They are wasting time waiting and disturbing scores of people. I've fought noise from garbage trucks coming at 4am. I've fought an apartment building illegally dropping construction debris from 3rd floor window into dumpster instead of using a chute. Life has become one long fight. I'm tired,

  • Good luck Cracked G., and Am, I understand your frustrations...it would be so simple to put up notices three days in advance. Gee, that takes planning....and report the garbage trucks (not the city's?) because they're not allowed to be operating before 7:00 AM. Use the same statute for which I provided the link and report the company, if not the city's.

    Oddly enough i find my elderly clients always have their walkways shoveled and salted. What a nice gesture victor. When i see posts looking for someone ill send them your way. I thought of this thread today as i walked a large elderly dog whos guardian fails to see its his dogs time. The dog slipped on the ice as he can barely walk on clear walkways. Then i remembered how i used to walk in lincoln park and see a blind woman everyday walking from clark to orchard and how upset i couldnt help her navigate as i was walking 2 large dogs myself but st hilary would not have their sidewalks shoveled or salted. Some peopl3 have a hard time walking without heels or snow or ice to navigate.

Is that man still trapping feral cats around the city?

It was on the news a few days ago http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/11/30/chicago-man-trapping-cats/ but I have not heard any updates.

I'm not sure how I feel about what he's doing. On one hand, I do not like the thought of half a million cats roaming the streets, and killing birds, and freezing to death.

But on the other hand, it is sad that they are going to an over crowded kill shelter.

Just curious to know if he is still at it?

    Chicago Man Trapping Cats Hopes To Get City's Attention
    CHICAGO (CBS) - A Chicago man, who has trapped more than 40 cats this week, was back at it on Thursday. Chicago's Animal Care and Control (CACC) asked Disgrace Felyer to stop, and even issued a warning to cat owners, or those who care for feral cat colonies, to keep their feline friends indoors.

    The pest abatement program I was referring to had to do with pigeons and the barbed and sharp wires around CTA train stations and other areas. I didn't mean to at all suggest that birds of prey were being purposely used as part of any pest abatement program. My aim was simply to point out some problems with the overgeneralized outdoor cats vs birds argument.

    These articles reference Bald Eagles being sighted in Chicago:

    If the sightings were technically in Chicago suburbs, and not in metro Chicago itself, I apologize. I'm not familiar with the technical boundaries between city and suburbs.

    I see it didn't take long for this to turn into a thread full of comments about the alleged benefits of having non-native predators like cats running wild in the city. The thread topic really is about this guy who is acting within the law to trap illegally free-roaming house cats (not ferals, even) and turning them in to CACC, which is supposed to (but clearly can't) accept them.

    Perhaps we should also talk about the fallacy that no-kill shelters are an actual solution to those which euthanize animals which cannot be adopted out. Because that's another thing that this trapper is demonstrating.

Painter Reccomendations

I had my condo painted a few weeks and the painter did a horrible job. He didn’t patch holes, didn’t use dropcloths, and didn’t paint the ceilings (this is an abbreviated list of what went wrong). I contacted Paintzen to get a quote and they said they would have to repaint everything, which I would rather not do.

  • I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset.

    I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset. I asked about painting the kitchen cabinets and they said it wouldn't be worth it, since the paint would come off due to the type of cabinets. They gave a little discount if I booked before March and with that discount the whole job is about half of what I was paying the other company. I'll let everyone know how it all turns out, but so far their office manager and dedicated project manager has been extremely helpful and professional.

Rental properties in Lake View

Hi! My husband and I are moving from DC to Chicago in April and are looking to rent in before buying. We've never worked with a broker before but think that may be our best option, since we'll only have a day or two to visit and find a place.

Does anyone have suggestions on a broker/agent? Thanks!

Cappleman has not mentioned this new displacement problem in Uptown against his own constituents and potential voters. He and is staff have not offered any assistance to relocate the tenants WITHIN the 46th Ward at a RENT THAT THE LOWER-INCOME TENANTS CAN STILL AFFORD. The 67 unit building is NOT a Single-Room Occupancy (SRO) building. It was fully occupied (no vacancies) at the time of sale, per RedFin. Due to the apartment mix which includes mostly one and two-bedroom apartments, the building is is likely mostly filled with couples and families., including some children Per Bill Cassin of Apartment Investment Advisers,the broker of the sale:a building-wide conversion into luxury apartments is planned for the building "The sale and planned repositioning of the apartment building will be similar the sale of another Uptown, 8-story building at 817 Lakeside, which is currently undergoing a comprehensive renovation.

According to Cassin, many vintage properties in the area are built well enough to convert into luxury apartments that complement the vintage style. In a statement he added that successful investors can achieve monthly rental rates above $2.00 per square foot while rents at dated properties can be as low as $1.00 per square foot.

Can anyone recommend a dog behaviorist in Lakeview who will actually come out to where we live (Belmont/Lake Shore) and go to the park with my and my dog to work on some really specific behavior issues? She's a great pup, a rescue (about 2 years old now), very sweet, and otherwise very well behaved, but needs help with not suddenly barking at occasional random runners and other people that startle her. (She's tiny so doesn't really startle people, but definitely want to help her to learn not to bark at people.)
I've gone to some training facilities and it's all great while we're there (and I do practice with her what we've learned), but I think it would be much more helpful to have someone who would walk with us and see what's occurring and give some training strategies. Know of anyone? Thank you!

  • Janice Triptow @ Dog Behavior Solutions. She’s been amazing with my dog-reactive rescue, and will come to you.

  • Michelle Clark Proud puppy parent to 2 girls!

    I've referred many people to Barker Behavior (specifically, Melissa) and they've all raved about the impact she made on them and their dogs in even one session. She comes to you and is not expensive. Highly recommend this company!!
