CHICAGO -- Signs likening the homeless to rats were spotted on Chicago’s North Side. They were tacked to utility poles in the city's Bucktown neighborhood, WGN-TV reports.

It was designed to look like city posters warning about areas of rat poisoning. Instead of a picture of a rat, there's a drawing of a homeless person with the headline "Target bums."

City crews have been ordered to take down any of the fake signs they see. There is no word on who is responsible for the signs.
