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.

WAUSAU - When you hear the word "gang," you may think of big cities like Chicago or Milwaukee. Unlike what many believe, they may be in your own backyard.

"The prominent one, the OTB, that this male juvenile claimed to be, that one was a known gang group here in the Wausau area," said Wausau Police Officer Houa Lee. "This other gang involving white, Hispanic, or black males, that was probably a hybrid gang that just formed."

Some gangs in Wausau have been around for the past fifteen years. Last week, a middle school boy died when a 15 year old stabbed him twice in the back. Police think the stabbing is gang related.

Recently, kids as young as ten years old are getting involved in gangs. Police say their biggest problem is keeping track of them.

NORTHWOODS - Some people will need to get their shanties off the lakes this weekend. DNR wardens say the ice conditions are much better than last year. That will make it easier to get the shanties off the ice and Wardens say they'll be strict about the deadline this year.

"We've had these cold temperatures, extremely cold temperatures at night, and that's helped to freeze up some of the slush that was on top of the ice," says Conservation Warden Supervisor David Walz. "We saw some extreme conditions last year where people were struggling to get their shacks off even come April."
