Pruning Vigilante

Someone has been walking around the neighborhood with loppers/shears and cutting tree branches and plants near the sidewalk and leaving piles of clippings. In many cases they are parkway trees and otherwise well-trimmed plants that are barely over the sidewalk and being mutilated by this individual.

Lost Dog Seen

Seen on the 300 S Taylor block early Saturday morning, a male beagle with a purple collar and tags. Friendly but scared. He wouldn't let me touch him. Hope he finds his way back home.
