At 4:05 p.m. on Monday, MSUM public safety was called to Ballard because a coyote was sighted next to the building.
Brian Klinnert, public safety officer, was first on the scene. The coyote was lying down in the corner of the building by door three of Ballard. Klinnert said that the coyote didn’t look normal.
“It appeared to be injured or sick,” he said.
Klinnert then called the Moorhead Police, who sent animal control officer Steve Kemper. Kemper arrived and captured the coyote.
“I took it north of Moorhead and turned it loose,” Kemper said.
