Authorities in Stearns County say they have found the owner of two mules who mysteriously showed up at a man's property Thursday morning.

According to the sheriff's office, 72-year-old Dean Suter of Belgrade noticed two mules along the roadway near his pasture and called to report them around 8:20 a.m.


Suter fed the mules and gave them water before calling the sheriff's office. He told authorities he did not know where the mules came from and does not know anyone in the area who owns mules.
