I'm not a Wisconsin attorney, but the law in most states does give you that right. Your best approach to this is to take photographs and a survey of your property to a lawyer in your area, who can explain exactly what you can and cannot do about this.
There is a right way and a wrong way to deal with the problem, and the wrong way is usually more expensive than the legal fees for reliable advice.
