      Injunction to force new strip club to shut its doors

      State's Attorney James Hoyle filed an injunction against Wildlife earlier this month after he discovered it violated an Illinois State Statute.

      The strip club that's caused an uproar of controversy in McDonough County has now officially shut its doors.

      A judge signed an injunction Thursday to close down Wildlife.

      State's Attorney James Hoyle filed an injunction against the club earlier this month after he discovered it violated an Illinois State Statute. That statute requires all adult entertainment establishments to be 3,000 ft away from homes, churches and schools.

      McDonough County Assistant State's Attorney Justin Bougher told KHQA that the injunction stops the strip club activity from happening within the building, but if owner Ron Gallahue wanted to open a bar or another business in that location, he could.

      The club has been closed since last week in anticipation of the judge's ruling.
