MADISON - Lions and tigers and bears - maybe in Oz, but not in Wisconsin if one Republican legislator gets his way. Sen. Van Wanggaard of Racine is pushing a bill that would prohibit people from owning dangerous exotic animals, including lions, tigers, polar bears, gorillas and alligators. The measure comes as Milwaukee police, the state Department of Natural Resources and animal control officers search for a mysterious lion-like creature that has roamed the city for the last few weeks. Animal control officials believe the animal is likely a released or escaped lion.

Cubs beat Brewers 4-3 to finish 4-game sweep; Bryant hurt

Led by rugged Lacy, the Packers 
break out the pads in camp
GREEN BAY - For the first time since their stunning loss in the NFC championship game in late January, the Green Bay Packers put on the pads Saturday. Running back Eddie Lacy responded in a predictable way. "That's when the big backs show up, when it's time to put the ball in their hand and accelerate the crease," coach Mike McCarthy said after practice.
Federal judge dismisses former 
chief justice's lawsuit
Tourists flock to gawk at massive highway bridge projects
State Supreme Court Chief Justice Patience Roggensack and former Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, whose suit to regain her post was thrown out Friday by a federal judge.MADISON - A federal judge has dismissed former Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson's lawsuit alleging her colleagues improperly stripped her of her title, ruling the justices were within their authority under a newly adopted constitutional amendment. Voters approved a Republican-authored amendment April 7 that allowed the justices to select their chief rather than automatically giving the title to the longest-serving justice.

ON THE ST. CROIX RIVER, Minn. - Jockeying for a rail spot on the third-floor deck of a St. Croix River paddlewheel boat starts an hour before departure. Up there are prime views of the towering piers, protruding concrete segments and barges full of heavy equipment - all elements of one of the biggest, most expensive bridge projects the Upper Midwest has seen.

Local, low-powered radio stations gaining steam in Wisconsin Couple creates purple martin 
habitat outside home in Scott
JANESVILLE - Local radio is on the rise in a big way even though the towers are short, the transmitters the size of home stereo receivers and the talent in need of more polish. Passion, dedication and a willingness to share locally produced programming that traditional commercial stations have abandoned, however, are abundant. SCOTT - Ike Kumrow said there are three things anyone trying to successfully attract and maintain a purple martin population must keep in mind: "location, location and finally, location." Kumrow and his wife, Jan, have lived on their five-acre "little slice of heaven," about nine miles north of West Bend for nearly 55 years. But Ike has had an enthusiasm for purple martins for even longer. Growing up on a farm, he saw many of the birds and became passionate about them.

TODAY IN SPORTS
Favre inducted into Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame
JACKSON, Miss. - For a guy who played football into his 40s and nearly had to be dragged off the field, Brett Favre certainly seems to be enjoying his post-NFL life. The 45-year-old former quarterback spends most of his time around Hattiesburg, hanging out with old friends or watching his daughter's high school volleyball team. He has a big house on a sizable chunk of property to enjoy the outdoors.
