Cottage Grove cops wrangle roaming reptile

Cottage Grove police community service officer Matthew Dahlquist often fields animal calls, retrieving loose dogs and cats and removing critters such as raccoons from a homeowner's yard.

The work typically does not involve large, prehistoric-looking reptiles.

Washington County park workers called police Thursday morning after they found an unusual reptile along the shore of a body of water at Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park.
