Better, Not Great Opening Week-end
Better weather. More deer. Happy hunters. It's probably too soon to say hunters across Wisconsin are completely pleased about the opening week-end of the state's nine day gun deer hunt just yet. But they certainly had a better time of it this year if you go by the numbers. The DNR pegs the preliminary total of deer harvested in the state after the first two days of gun deer at a little over 106 thousand. That's a six percent increase over last year's opening week-end totals of just a little over a hundred thousand deer. But also down considerably from 134 thousand in 2008 and over 170 thousand in 2007.
Man Who Stabbed Cop Going Back To Hospital
Joseph Smith is going back to the hospital...
A La Crosse County judge rules that Smith is again 'showing signs of mental illness,' after being released from the Mendota hospital earlier this year. Smith originally was committed four years ago, after wounding a La Crosse policeman in the chest with a screwdriver. Experts testified today that since his release into the community a few weeks ago, Smith has had hallucinations about shootings happening near his home, or police being outside his home, and has called the police for help.
Guy Slashes Friend, Charged with Mayhem
A La Crosse guy will spend his Thanksgiving week healing from some pretty significant stab wounds. Cops say the 44 year-old apparently upset his roommate, 37 year-old John Rera on Saturday. To the point where, cops say, Rera stabbed his buddy. Actually more like slashed him. Across the chest, across the back. Doctors say the guy would have died if he hadn't got help right away. Police suspect Rera might have been on an Adderall bender. Apparently he told cops, he just wasn't thinking straight. Rera faces a number of charges, including one for reckless endangerment and one for mayhem.
