Wolves killed at least 21 dogs in Wisconsin this summerSubmitted: 09/16/2013
MADISON - Wolves killed at least 21 dogs in Wisconsin this summer.

A couple of the attacks were on pets, but most of them involved dogs being trained to hunt bear.

They typically happen when the bear dogs get into an area where wolves are raising their young.

When wolves attack dogs on public land, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will create a "wolf caution area".

Bear hunters are urged to be careful if they plan to train hounds or hunt bear with hounds near any caution area.

WISCONSIN/THREE LAKES - Wisconsin continues to be the best state nationwide when it comes to producing cranberries. One Northwoods farm is preparing to make this year even better.

James Lake Farms in Three Lakes harvested close to 8,000 barrels last year. They hope to meet those expectations this year.

Right now they are in the growing season. The assistant manager believes Wisconsin is a natural environment for growing cranberries.

"It's fairly consistent as compared to somewhere out on the coast where most of the other cranberries are grown. I think a lot of those things combined help make it a good place to grow," said James Lake Farms Assistant Manager Benjamin Riker.

RHINELANDER AND MINOCQUA - Summer gets us outside playing games on the lake or in the yard, but with cooler temperatures this year, trips to the lake may not be as popular.

"We're definitely getting a lot more traffic with the cooler temperatures. A lot more people in the door, which we're loving. We are seeing a lot more people buying more project based items.
