Fifer v. Dix
In Fifer v. Dix, 2000 WI App 66, 234 Wis. 2d 117, 126 n.5, 608 N.W.2d 740, 744 n.5, the Court stated: "because 'keepers' are considered 'owners' under Wis. Stat. ch. 174, an injured third party could perhaps have sued the keeper as well as the owner for his injuries under 174.02(1)."
However, because the injured third party in Fifer had sued only the owner, and not the keeper as well, we declined to address the keeper's potential liability for the injuries either to the injured party or to the owner by way of contribution.
