Not that long ago, Chicago was home to the world famous stockyards where an enormous number of cattle, pigs and other creatures were slaughtered. Today, the stockyards are gone, but its ghost lingers. This part of the river was used as a dumping ground for unused carcasses, diseased animals and the like.
