A City Gone to the (Wild) Dogs? "Wild Coyotes Roam Chicago Streets," Including at the Legendary, But Now Overgrown & Dissipated, Wrigley Field...

I knew things weren't going so good in the Windy City. Hardly a day goes by when I don't read about some rampant crime story from Chicago or some other major economic or other crisis there (Tom Kane has been the worst mayor imaginable).  But I didn't know things were this bad...

The new fall NBC TV series "Revolution" exposed the sad dilapidated, overgrown state (pictured above) of historic Wrigley Field, but it gets even worse: Wild canines are now running the Chicago city streets in droves, including in and around the old ballpark (link below).

Reports, "wild coyotes" have been "roaming Wrigleyville streets" (pictured at top).  One local said, "I've lived here all my life and that's crazy," in response to the sight of a "pair of rather large coyotes hanging outside the ballpark looking for a snack."

And it's more than just a pair of dirty dogs:  There have also been reports of wild coyotes "running under the [Wrigley] marquee" and "near the [Cubs baseball legend] Ernie Banks statute."

Man.  Officially chalk up Chi-Town upon my list of cities where I wouldn't want to live, and damn sure don't want to visit, either. They could at least trim the damn ballpark overgrowth!
