Pro-wolf groups seek court action to block use of dogs in upcoming hunt
The wildlife agency in Wisconsin, the only state that allows people to use dogs while hunting wolves, faces a lawsuit contending that it is permitting state-sanctioned animal fighting.
The suit, filed on Tuesday in Dane County Circuit Court, seeks a court injunction halting the issuing of permits by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for a five-month hunting season beginning in October. About 8,400 people have applied for permits so far.
