Thanks to a reader for sending from Princeton Pl, NW last night. Can anyone identify? If so please let me know ASAP so I can let OP know if they can climb down from the tree or not.

If you spot a hawk or any other bird of prey or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue.

A reader writes:

“Here is the story I wrote to my rescue group:

My CityDogs alum, Watson, paid his good luck forward today.

As Watson and I were coming home from a long, hot morning walk, Watson started barking out of nowhere. Watson is mostly silent, so it was weird. It was especially weird because it was a “hey there is a dog” bark, but we were walking past an abandoned building, nothing and nobody in sight.

Then I see a small gym looking bag. I had already seen it, but my neighborhood isn’t the cleanest and stuff like that is always getting left around. Then the bag started shivering.

Inside was a little doxie dog. Left on the side of the building like a piece of trash. Just with some shitty milk bones and no water, in direct sunlight. If it hadn’t been for Watson, I would have walked right past that black bag and who knows would have happened to the pup. I called 911 and animal control, who took the little pup in. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I was sitting on my porch on Warder St NW the other morning and heard a very loud crash a few doors down. I went to investigate and saw a light pole had fallen and smashed a car. A contractor was parallel parking a van and a ladder attached to the roof bumped the pole. No big deal – contractor’s fault. The scary part is the second two pictures. The pole is supposed to be held in place on the base with nuts and bolts. If you look at the very rusty bolts, you can tell that there obviously haven’t been nuts on them in a very long time – maybe years. That means that the bolts were just sitting in the holes and the entire pole was just balancing on the base. It kind you wonder how many of these giant light poles are barely attached and a danger. There’s no way a ladder bumping into the pole should have brought it down.”
