The US Fish and Wildlife Service is offering $2,500 in rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction responsible for the deaths of four wolves and six bald eagles near the Bob Marshal Wilderness Area in Montana. The reward is one of three in the region involving cases of mysterious animal deaths.
Lab results have shown the animals died as a result of poisoning in May, but fish and wildlife special agent Rick Branzell said Tuesday he could not elaborate on any details of the case because, â€śthe matter is still under investigation.â€ť
Leevers Foods, one of two grocery stores in Valley City, has dropped its affiliation with SuperValu and is now carrying products from the Nash Finch Company. Dave Heisler, vice president of Leevers Foods, said the only significant change will be in the store brand label.
The Our Family brand, which has been around for 100 years, offers â€śa lot wider variety and high quality products,â€ť according to Heisler.
Leeverâ€™s was formerly under the SuperValu affiliation with the Flavorite store brand label.
Other than the brand change customers shouldnâ€™t expect to see too many changes.
VC Vet, the Valley City veterinarian clinic, is offering a 15 percent discount to pet owners who bring their cats and dogs in to be spayed or neutered from September 17â€“20. The push to help control the pet population is from the Sheyenne Valley Friends of Animals, and specifically the spay/neuter committee.
â€śWe want to get as many animals spayed and neutered as we possibly can, for people of whom cost is a factor,â€ť said SVFA member Angie Martin.
