Animal sightings

We had a resident recently report a fox sighting in the neighborhood. We have had frequent foxes in the hood and while we never want to say it is of no concern there are certain animals that we expect to see. We have seen fewer over the last few years because of the continued building of homes. There are also hawks that will frequently nest in the hood. These wild animals, particularly the mammals, will roam at dusk and sunrise and sometimes through the night. It is good practice to be very aware of that if you have a small pet. While your pet would have to be quite small for a hawk or fox to bother with, coyotes are a bit more of a concern. While the board can communicate sightings to the homeowners, it may not always be immediate. If you feel there is a real threat you should contact the city or the DNR -here is the link Cottage Grove Animal Control
