The recent weather changes have brought some predictable calls to Cottage Grove police. Snow covered streets and highways resulted in numerous traffic accidents and medical calls from shoveling heavy wet snow were reported as well. Another type of call, however, is not so typical.

We then asked Chief Wollery if the actions were a recommended response to the incident.
