Activists still irked at North Chicago pound operations
Animal rights activists aren�t letting up on their push to see that dogs -- and other critters -- found neglected or on the loose in North Chicago -- get responsible care at the city pound.
About 10 protesters showed up at a meeting of the City Council this week to press the issue. A group also protested, with signs, at a meeting on Nov. 21 after Waukegan Animal Control staffers tried to drop off an animal at the shelter at 14th Street and Rankin Avenue and found six hungry, lethargic dogs sitting in cages of caked-on feces, with no warden on duty.
