MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Here’s a look at the four things you need to know for Sunday, Aug. 16.

Number 1: Coyotes In The Suburbs

Coyotes are to blame for the deaths of several small pets in Bloomington.

In the past few weeks, police there have received six different reports of coyote attacks.

Five of the pets attacked have died.

Number 2: It’s The 70th Anniversary Of The End Of WWII

To honor members of the Greatest Generation buried in Fort Snelling National Cemetery, there will be a public wreath laying ceremony there at 11 a.m.

Number 3: Loadholt May Be Out For The Season

The Vikings beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday night at TCF Bank Stadium, 26 to 16.

So far, the Vikings are 2-0 in the preseason.

But the bad news is that Vikings right tackle Phil Loadholt probably tore his Achilles tendon in the first quarter.

He may be out for the rest of the season.

Number 4: Open Streets On Franklin

This will be the fourth of eight Open Streets events this summer.

No cars will be allowed on Franklin Avenue between Portland Avenue and 28th Avenue.

People can walk, bike, skate, and shop from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the neighborhood street.
