Walker cancels $500,000 grant to sportsman's group; moldy Chobani products recalled; 10 more state stories


MADISON -- A politically connected group will not get a state grant to encourage more Wisconsinites to go hunting and fishing.

Gov. Scott Walker Thursday night canceled the $500,000 grant awarded eight days ago to the United Sportsmen Foundation.

The action came after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that the group's leader, Andy Pantzlaff, was fined in 2005 for hunting with an improper license in Langlade County.
