Humane society sues to stop Wisconsin wolf hunt

The lawsuit filed Wednesday in Dane County Circuit Court charges that the agency failed to comply with parts of a state rule requiring the agency to impose restrictions on training and hunting with dogs. The agency also violated provisions that require the agency to “curtail unsafe proximity between dogs and wolves,” according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit seeks an injunction to halt the hunt until the DNR establishes reasonable restrictions on the use of dogs. An initial hearing on the request for an injunction is scheduled in Dane County Circuit Court for Aug. 29.
