Judge set to consider blocking Wis. wolf hunt

Posted:

A Dane County judge is expected to consider this week whether to halt Wisconsin's new wolf hunt before it starts.

A coalition of humane societies filed a lawsuit earlier this month seeking an injunction blocking the hunt. The coalition argues the state Department of Natural Resources failed to include any provisions to protect hunting dogs from being killed or maimed by wolves they're tracking.

Judge Peter C. Anderson is set to hear motions in the case on Monday and hold an injunction hearing Wednesday.

The hunt is set to begin Oct. 15 and run through the end of February.
