Wisconsin is a midwestern U.S. state with coastlines on two Great Lakes. The state’s largest city, Milwaukee, is full of interesting things to do. You can visit the Milwaukee Public Museum, which recreates international villages and displays classic motorcycles. The Harley-Davidson Museum also has a display of vintage motorcycles. There are several beer companies in the city, including Budweiser, Miller Lite and Coors.
The state’s geography is divided into six distinct regions, including the Northern Highland, a broad upland underlain by granitic bedrock. The highest point is Timms Hill, which is located in the county of Price. The Northern Highland slopes gently toward the Central Plain, a crescent-shaped area of sandstone that lies in the south. The western upland lies in the southwest corner of the state and is etched by rivers and streams.
Wisconsin is home to two subspecies of the mourning dove, one of which is the state bird. The doves stay in Wisconsin during the winter months, while others migrate to their wintering grounds. The dove is hunted in many states and has been in Wisconsin for centuries. While it is one of the most common birds in North America, it is still protected as a symbol of peace. The state’s mourning doves are listed as a federally endangered species.
Historically, Wisconsin has had a very high incidence of violent crime. In 2009, there were 14,603 violent crimes reported in Wisconsin. In addition, there were 4,633 sexual assaults. According to the Office of Justice Assistance, only 50% of the perpetrators of these crimes were cleared. However, the United States Bureau of Investigation published a report that revealed that the number of victims in these crimes is low in the state. The state has a relatively low criminal-to-population ratio.
