What Sides You Want With That?
A rooster with a broken wing that was rescued after causing a brief interruption to Blue Line service overnight in the Logan Square neighborhood has to be euthanized, authorities said.
It wasn’t known how the animal got onto the northbound tracks at the Logan Square subway station, but power was turned off at 12:14 a.m., according to CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski. The stop is located at 2620 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Chicago Police and personnel from the city’s Dept. of Animal Care and Control were summoned to the scene to assist it off the track and 12 minutes later, the service was restored, Hosinski said.
Animal control executive director Cherie Travis said the bird suffered a broken wing.
“Unfortunately, the vet examined the rooster and determined that he has a broke wing and will be euthanized,’’ said Travis.
