West Nile Infecting Loons

More loons are getting tested for West Nile Virus this week, after the DNR reports an uptick in dead loons in northeastern Minnesota. DNR’s Gaea Crozier, “we are asking the public that if they see two or more dead loons on a lake that they report that to us, and we’re doing this as a way to track where people are finding dead loons and track where the West Nile Virus may be occurring.” Crozier says infected mosquitoes transfer the disease to the loons–which die quickly as a result. If you see dead loons, simply email the information to the nearest DNR non-game wildlife staff for tracking.

Wage Theft Law Includes All

MINNESOTA NEWS NETWORK

Minnesota’s top elected officials said this week they’ll enforce a new state law against wage theft by employers, even if the victims are workers not in the U-S legally. State Attorney General Keith Ellison warns employers about exploitation of undocumented immigrants, “There are some folks who we know seek out undocumented people because they think there won’t be enforcement action. Those people are mistaken and they should abide by the law.”
Observers say strict enforcement of Minnesota’s wage theft law could set up a conflict with federal enforcement of immigration laws.
