RHINELANDER - Fifteen different vandalism-related charges moved forward against a Monico 17-year-old in court Friday.

Anthony Briggs is accused of working with two other teenagers in this Monico break-in and several others.

Although Briggs is just 17, the accusations against him are a big deal.

"They are now in criminal court. The damage that they did is very serious. It's extensive. We, in prosecuting these cases, will take these charges very seriously," says Oneida County Assistant District Attorney Steve Michlig.

Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom decided there was enough evidence to continue the case.

Seventeen-year-old Jeffrey Stefonik faces similar charges for the crimes.

A 15-year-old is also being charged in juvenile court.

Briggs is free on bond until an April 8th court date.

Stefonik will enter his plea on Monday.

WISCONSIN - Coyotes become more active and territorial this time of year.

That's because it's breeding season for the animal.

The DNR hopes people will take steps to avoid interactions with coyotes.

But if there is an interaction the department tells people to use scare tactics like yelling and throwing objects towards the animal.

Fortunately, the Northwoods doesn't have as big of a problem with coyote interactions as the southern part of Wisconsin.

"Down there's a lot of food in these communities," DNR Bear, Wolf, and Furbearer Research Scientist Nathan Roberts said. "A lot of house cats running around. A lot of animal food that is out, garbage that's out, and that habituates the coyote to come in towards houses."
