A wolf that reportedly showed no fear of humans was captured and euthanized on the outskirts of the city of Superior Oct. 29. The yearling male, which had a black coat, has been seen by Canadian National employees at the Pokegama railroad yard right outside the city limits. They reported that the wolf had come close to workers and was not scared away by a loud train whistle or when they threw rocks at it. Past encounters with wolves in the area, they reported, were brief sightings before a wolf would disappear. But this one had no fear. Such an incident is rare.

Four Douglas County waterways are poised to join the list of impaired waters throughout Wisconsin. The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is seeking public comment on the proposed list. A majority of these new listings — 183, including three in Douglas County — are for lakes or river stretches that exceed new, more restrictive phosphorus standards that took effect in December 2010. Many of these new phosphorus listings are in areas with restoration plans already in development and were waters that had never been previously assessed for phosphorus.

The Thanksgiving Day Fun Walk/Run in Lake Nebagamon is an odd duck. No one will be tracking times. No T-shirts or awards will be waiting at the end of the line, although runners may get a high-five. Participants can walk or run any distance they choose. Dogs and strollers are welcome. No registration is needed. This is the fourth year the event, organized by a group of female runners from the community, takes place.
