Urban coyotes pose little danger


It may seem alarming to run across a coyote while on a walk in downtown Rosemount. But the wild canines are in Rosemount and generally pose no danger to residents.

Police chief Gary Kalstabakken said police officers have reported seeing coyotes near the train tracks near downtown.

"You will see them in town," said Kalstabakken. But Kalstabakken said coyotes "are generally not an issue."
