Natural Selection Thwarted

Once again, tens of man hours along with thousands of real dollars are wasted while putting real human lives at risk:
  • It was a lonely scene — a freezing coyote, stranded on a tiny slab of ice, adrift in Lake Michigan.

    Lonely — except for the news helicopters circling overhead, the Fire Department boat dispatched to rescue the wayward animal and the crowds gathered on the shore.

    The 3-year-old female got into the fix Friday morning on the ice off Fullerton Avenue. At one point, the coyote jumped into the water, only to retreat to the chunk of ice keeping her afloat.

A dumb coyote isn't worth a single fire fighter's life or a single hour of operation of a fire boat. We're surprised they didn't launch Air-One for this debacle but we'd still say it wasn't worth the operation or risk to police officer's lives either.

There's a reason that you don't see certain behaviors in the animal kingdom - stupidity is rarely rewarded. Mother Nature is a cruel teacher. And risking real human lives to interfere is a trade-off we've never understood.

UPDATE: To all the posters calling us "animal hater" and other crap, how would you feel if some firefighter, coast guard member or helicopter operator ended up in the water and unrecoverable? Stuff like this comes down to evaluating the value of a human life versus an animal that routinely hunts on or near the water in all sorts of weather. Sorry, but we pick the human, each and every time.

Ah, but a liberal democrat has a heart as big as the contents of your wallet! There is no longer ANY need for suffering! No need to work to feed, clothe and house you and yours! The uber-generous liberal will just take the money from you to support professional loafers. So kiddies, just do as you please, someone will bail you out of all your dumb decisions.

SCC,
Some dopey ass kissing fireman assisned to the boats / dive team was interviewed for the news story i heard on the radio. He stated something to the fact that they (the fire dept) dont normally engage in such a risky operation as they arent trained to deal with wild animals. He then went on to say that they only participated in the endeavor because "ANIMAL CONTROL WAS ON THE SCENE SO QUICKLY", and that animal control was trained on how to deal with wild animals calling it a joint endeavor. In twenty years I've called for animal control at least a hundred times and NEVER had them respond to a request for there assistance. I've worked every shift and all I ever hear from a dispatcher is "We'll notify them, They dont start till..., and They are off till... Animal control is about as useless and speedy as DCFS when it comes to a notification or response. But at least I can get a name from animal control for the notification section of my report when I call.

Yeah, but it reinforces the media stereotype that firefighters, even when traveling by boat, are heroes.

Cops? No. They're just a bunch of trigger-happy, fist-fighting drunks.

Ten years ago Marine Unit officers rescued a dog off the ice of the frozen Chicago River at the locks. The officer who got the closest to do the rescue got bitten up and went IOD.

But the Marine Unit got great publicity for weeks and the unit was sent pictures from school kids and letters galore.

Now Field Marshall Von Georgas has them mostly detailed out for the winter. Let CFD get the publicity and make the rescues and soon he will decide we don't need a Marine Unit.

There are always coyotes trapped on ice chunks and the breakwall due to freeze thaw. There are families living for generations out at the filtration plant. It's nature's way.

It's good training. Everything is already paid for. It's not like the firemen wouldn't have got paid or they had to buy the boat. The military does things all the time that fall outside the scope of operational needs. You can't duplicate or out-plan spontaneous events. Every one of those municipal employees is better at their job today because of yesterday.

I am shocked.

I was going to comment about this yesterday on SCC and really thank the CFD for helping a poor creature. That was a real highlight seeing that on the WGN News at Noon. A REAL highlight.

With all the senseless violence going on in the city, seeing them help a poor animal was a great thing. To me, money well-spent and I think if they asked for donations to pay for the fuel to get out to him - there would be a ton of money flowing in.

For you to question that SCC is abominable. The coyote helps keep the rat population down in the city.

If anything, you should look at the coyote as nature's police taking care of the four-legged rats while CPD takes care of the two-legged rats.

If anything, the POLICE should adopt it.

I would rather see them help the coyote, then see all the money wasted in the ghetto. At least the coyote is productive and has a job.

Great Job CFD. CPD should not be jealous that they got some good press. Go help the coyotes. They are God's K9 unit.

Coyotes go out onto the ice floes and iced over lakes all the time. They wait for prey to come along the shores, or land, or swim up and that is part of their hunting technique in the winter. This yote seemed to have been scared to come in after it garnered the attention of a whole bunch of humans. Leave 'em alone, they make it back, can swim, if they don't make it back, fish have a tasty meal.
It is very common to see them on the ice along the Great Lakes, usually at night.
um if anyone sees a puma/cougar/mountain lion, please shoot it

Frankly, I would have shot it, end of story. i read this news post yesterday. Now living in the country and seeing the destruction and killing these "furry little DEMONS" do, I plug one every chance I get.

.223 round does a nice job. I call them demons because they when moving in a pack and get a kill, usually a baby deer, MY DUCKS and attacking at my horses their howl sounds like the demons out of Hades.

Most of them carry more disease then a westside whore, have mange and are unhealthy for livestock and humans. They make dens underground where I have dropped the wheels of my tractor in and almost lost a horse when his leg went into the hidden hole. They are a pox on my farm, and I invite anyone down here that wants to have a shoot a coyote day. Best hunt I have been in was with a boom box playing classical music they seem to love it!!! little buggers came out in droves and the shooting fish in a barrel analogy was in play.

And yes I am an animal lover, not a lover of the demon coyotes.

I saw a poor hungry, wet and trembling junkyard rat shivering in the cold. I felt so sorry for the little vermin. He is one of God's creatures too and deserves a chance to live his life, even if he does spread disease from time to time.

But I did my duty, I called Animal Control and demanded someone come out and feed this rat and give him some shelter. I heard some laughter and then a click. That was yesterday. No one came.

The poor rat is still soooo hungry, I am going to go buy some meat and bread for him, God's misunderstood little creature. It is the least I can do. Then I will have the little rat bites on my hands checked out at a clinic.

MR at AC is an incompetent hack who thinks that he's still running the large mammal unit at Lincoln Park Zoo.

He's no leader. He's a whiny brat who throws tantrums until he gets what he wants. The morale of the AC inspectors is the same as the CPD. They don't like their leader.

AC puts in a woman as a commissioner who's basically a figurehead. The ops manager, MR in this case, is the one who actually runs things.

The reason why the CPD has a problem with getting a AC officer to respond is they only have a handful of inspectors on each shift, at the most.

All first hand knowledge.

Oh. Coyotes are vermin, plain and simple. Only thing they're good for here in Chicago is thinning out the smaller rodent population. Other than that, they should be shot on sight. Unfortunately the press caught wind of it this time.

Your comment is noted sir, just do your job and if anyone of you "city workers" die then I'll buy a nice t-shirt or get drunk at your benefit like all the rest of your "friends" do.

You are a fucking liberal fucktard. Stay the hell away from our benefits, we dont need your $10 donation for a t-shirt you don't deserve to wear. I truly couldn't come up with a nicer thing to say!

You'll catch hell no matter what choice you make; if the pros think they can do it with minimal risk to life and limb, I say let them do it because it may work out to everyone's benefit with lots of good PR.

I just hope none of Chicago's Finest pull anything like this:
