Mediocre Oregon State beats Badgers, 10-7


Afterward, the Badgers were frustrated. Frustrated with losing to a team they had beaten 35-0 last year. Frustrated with failing to score until less than 2 minutes remained in the game. And most of all, frustrated that the engine that drives the UW program — the grind-it-out running game — was held in check by an Oregon State defense that supposedly was weak up the middle.

Are dogs essential to a wolf hunt’s success?

No, despite what advocates say:

Carl Sinderbrand, the Madison lawyer representing the plaintiffs, said other states have wolf hunting seasons that are expected to be successful even though hunting dogs aren’t allowed.

States such as Montana have had successful wolf hunts without dogs. Even Alaska, Sinderbrand added, limits the use of dogs to using a leashed dog to track a wounded wolf.

Minnesota also is putting its first wolf hunting season in place but will not allow the use of dogs. Chris Niskanen, a spokesman for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, said the agency has set a quota of 400 wolves out of the state’s total population of about 3,000.
