Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we’re working on for FOX6 News this evening.

Alabamian defends lion hunting

Former Olympic and UA swim coach Don Gambril is defending the sport of hunting big game animals including lions. However, he is not defending the Minnesota dentist accused of shooting a lion that was baited into leaving a protected refuge. We’ll hear from Gambril tonight.

What’s the plan?

We’ll take a closer look tonight at Governor Bentley’s proposal for a state budget. We’ll show you the specific hikes he is hoping state lawmakers will approve.

Soccer tickets

Tickets for the September 20 soccer match between the U.S. World Cup Champs and Australia will go on sale tomorrow. We’ll tell you the best way to get them.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 on FOX6 News.
