PARK RAPIDS -- The vexing problem of animal control - specifically dogs - will see another chapter written Monday in Hubbard County District Court.


That's when a rural resident, Russell Patrick Olson, 44, will enter into a plea agreement in a dog shooting case.

Initially facing a felony charge of cruelty to animals, Olson likely will plead to a misdemeanor charge of criminal property damage. The felony will be dismissed.
