GRAND FORKS — Audits of North Dakota's and Minnesota's day care systems raise red flags in child care licensing, with problems ranging from leaving children in unsafe care to making data inaccessible for parents. The North Dakota State Auditor's Office 2017 biennium report of the Department of Human Services (DHS) said flaws in the system are "jeopardizing the health and safety of children." The department denied there was potential for harm.
The bear that wandered into Grand Forks’ University Park and climbed up a tree Monday was euthanized, police said Tuesday. A Facebook post from the Grand Forks Police Department said the animal was taken out of town for medical examination.
