Captive deer facilities more than 300 miles apart in Wisconsin were placed under quarantine March 7 after chronic wasting disease was found in a whitetail buck in the source herd, according to state agriculture officials. The buck was sampled for CWD on Feb. 18 after it was found dead at Tamarack Elk and Deer Farm in Kewaskum. It apparently died from injuries suffered in a fight with other animals at the 15-acre facility, according to the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
The Department of Natural Resources will hold a hunting season for elk in northern Wisconsin this fall, the first regulated hunt for the species in state history. The limited opportunity will target bulls only. Ten kill tags will be made available to Wisconsin residents only: Five will be allocated to Chippewa tribes in Wisconsin, four to applicants selected through a lottery and one will be raffled off by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.
DE SOTO - The view from the Great River Road on Wisconsin's left coast was breathtaking. On this mid-February morning, the frozen surface of the Mississippi River stretched out to the west, its crystal cover creating a winding ribbon through brown, tree-topped islands and high-shouldered bluffs. A trio of bald eagles sat in a clump of cottonwoods just south of De Soto. In a nearby coulee, a half-dozen white-tailed deer foraged across an oak bench beneath a sandstone outcropping.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
