Bill Seeks to Prevent Hunting of Wolves with DogsSubmitted: 03/04/2013
Story By Associated Press


MADISON - A Democratic state senator is circulating a bill that would prohibit wolf hunters from using dogs.

Senator Fred Risser of Madison sent an email to his fellow lawmakers on Monday asking for co-sponsors.

He notes in the email that humane societies oppose the use of dogs in the wolf hunt.

A group of humane societies filed a lawsuit in August alleging state wildlife officials failed to impose any restrictions on using and training dogs on wolves.

A Dane County judge issued a temporary injunction that blocked the use of dogs during the wolf season.

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.

TOMAHAWK - A Tomahawk man turns his love for logging into woodworking hobby and business.

Wesley Bushor shows and sells woodwork out of his home.

"I don't consider myself an artist. I'm just, I'm a logger who likes to glue sticks together," said Bushor.

Wesley Bushor started working on his wood pieces about 20 years ago.

"Being a logger I come across things all the time that I like in the woods, and I decided I'd start building some basic rustic furniture, and I built a bed. A few weeks later it fell apart, but I was hooked from then on," said Bushor.
 
Bushor's house is his gallery, and you can find his work in every room. The result: a whimsical home that showcases his love for his hobby and trade. He's proud of the work he's done.
