On Video: Chicago’s Wild Side

First, foul-tempered foul, from the Chicago Tribune:

At P.M. Bedroom Gallery. . . two Canada geese have made a home.

 The female spends most of her days atop a pile of six or seven eggs. . . . But the male gets ornery, bordering on hostile, when he believes his progeny, which are due to hatch in early May, are threatened. With surprising speed and power, he has gone after numerous customers since the last weekend of March, drawing blood from about five.

And, cougar killed on North Side, also from the Tribune:

A cougar ran loose in Chicago on Monday for the first time since the city's founding in the 19th Century. But by day's end, the animal lay dead in a back alley on the North Side, shot by police who said they feared it was turning to attack.
