When Illinois' weather starts to take a frigid turn, you start seeing more and more dogs sporting winter coats, Of course, from a fashion angle, they look fabulous, but do Illinois dogs really need a coat for anything other than compliments?
It's not easy being an elk in Illinois these days especially if you're looking for a relationship. Don't ask me how I know. There's a report that one of these large animals is currently traversing the great state of Illinois near Springfield in search of a mate. I can prove that most of this is true.
If you've spent enough time near the Mississippi River, you know there are some strange things in those waters. That's proved true again as a man in Iowa just found something next to the river and no one has a clue what it is.
