MADISON ó A Dane County judge has blocked hunters from using dogs to go after wolves this fall.

Judge Peter C. Anderson issued a temporary injunction Friday as part of a lawsuit a group of humane societies have filed against the Department of Natural Resources. The group contends the DNR failed to impose restrictions on hunting dogs during this fallís wolf hunt, setting deadly dog-wolf clashes in the woods.

Itís unclear what the ruling means for the hunt. Anderson says hunters can still go after wolves. DNR officials have warned the injunction could scuttle the hunt. They have said donít have enough time to change their regulations to reflect the dog ban before the hunt begins in mid-October.

DNR attorney Tim Andryk says the agency will have to review the judgeís order.
