"Are wolves trusted neighbors?"


Last Thursday morning, February, 21st, 2013, at 10:30 a.m., two wolves intruded into our yard as if it belonged to them.  There we were, standing outside, some sixty feet away.  I was totally surprised and taken aback.  This is a first for me.  Are they dangerous?


This is in south Waukegan, next to the Greenbelt behind Belvidere Mall.  I've heard what sound like coyotes howling at night up in Lyons woods.  But, this is the first time I've ever been faced with the feral dogs, up close and personal. 


They ran through our place, in single file, as if chasing after a rabbit.  They came from the northwest direction of the forest, across a neighbor's yard, crossing the street, then into our front yard, making a bee line, next disappearing behind the house, as, in hot pursuit of something.


I ask:  are our pets, children, and selves safe near these animals?  I would like some feedback from the appropriate, governmental authority which consults with biologists for expert opinion.  Do these animals need to be more strictly controlled?


Waukegan has a leash ordinance for domestic pets, but these guys run wild.  While I enjoy the presence of other wild life like deer, raccoon, and opossum, these aggressive carnivores I mention give one pause.  The wolves appeared to be working as a team, robust, agile, rapid, and with temerity.  Their size appeared around 75 to 90 pounds each, well fed and healthy.


We want to feel safe in our community.  Who in local government can ensure it is happening?
