OKLEE, Minn. — A landowner's tip led to the discovery of several pipe bombs at an apparent explosives stash near a northwest Minnesota hunting cabin Sunday, Oct. 22. The Red Lake County Sheriff's Office received a report of potential bomb-making materials found near a cabin in Equality Township, just northeast of Oklee, Minn., at 11 a.m. Sunday after a landowner made an unusual discovery, according to a press release.
ROSEAU COUNTY, Minn.—Hundreds of pigs that died in a farming accident in northern Minnesota were disposed of in a rendering plant, authorities say. Michael Crusan, communications director of the Minnesota Board of Animal Health, said that 473 pigs died in a farming accident in Roseau County on Oct. 26. The Board of Animal Health visited the farm within 72 hours of the incident, Crusan said, and helped determine what to do with the carcasses. If the caracasses are left out for more than 72 hours, sanitary and health issues can arise, Crusan said.
