URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

DNR research surveys continue in gun deer season

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WSAU) - The DNR is asking hunters to help them out some basic biology research while they're out in the woods for the gun hunt.

The DNR is tagging several hundred deer this hunting season with both radio collars and metal ear tags. Biologist Kris Belling says it's a similar method as banding birds. "We're trying to get a sense of where these deer end up and how they're dying, whether hunting, predation or other causes."

If you do spot a deer in the woods that's got a collar or is marked, Belling says you should feel free to harvest the animal if you'd normally do so. "We don't want people not to shoot because of the tags." After you harvest an animal simply take the collar or the tag with you to the registration station and fill out a survey on where you killed the animal.

Hunters are also asked to keep up with their reporting of what animals they spot out in the woods with the annual Wildlife Survey. That had been used earlier in the year to count doe-fawn rations for deer population estimates, but Belling says other animals in the survey are also being looked for. "That's used to verify sightings of bobcats and badgers and other critters that aren't usually readily visible to us."

More info on the wildlife survey and the tags is available online at DNR.WI.GOV.
