Authorities urge caution during Halloween trick or treating

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Halloween is six days away, but many Wisconsin communities will hold their trick or treating hours this weekend so kids can go out when there's daylight. 

Local authorities are putting out their usual safety notices. 

Once again this year, state probation and parole agents will be on the prowl for high risk sex offenders who open their homes to young kids in violation of their releases. 

Marathon County sheriff's lieutenant Mark Wagers says parents need to be watchful of their young ghosts and goblins both during and after their travels. He says there's greater safety in numbers -- especially in rural areas -- and kids need to travel together, escorted by older teens or adults. 

If it's dark, they'll need reflective gear -- and the escorts should make sure they follow all traffic laws.

Back home, Wagers says parents need to check the candy and make sure their kids don't eat treats that will give them food allergies.

Wagers also warned against vandalism, saying that citations and arrests will be made according to how severe the violations are.
