Bill to outlaw dogs in Wisconsin wolf hunt


MADISON (WKOW) -- A state senator from Madison wants to outlaw the use of dogs in Wisconsin's wolf hunt.

Democrat Fred Risser is asking his fellow lawmakers to co-sponsor a bill he's written that would end the use of dogs in the wolf hunt.

A Dane County judge initially issued a temporary injunction against dogs.

Then, in January, the judge approved dog use during the hunt but barred training them on wolves.

Risser's bill has little chance of passing. republicans control both the Senate and Assembly.
