The body of a man was found at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge in Bloomington on Thursday morning.

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office told BMTN that the discovery was made by a walker at 8:30 a.m.

The body was pulled from a creek by first responders, with the sheriff's office and Bloomington police investigating the death.

"At this point in time no foul play is suspected," the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office said.

The refuge is managed by the federal U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and covers a vast, 7-mile stretch of land from Bloomington to Henderson, Minnesota.

Covering 14,000 acres, the refuge is home to numerous trails and pathways, as well as outdoor recreational experiences, and is home to a diverse range of waterfowl, migratory birds, fish, and even coyotes.
