HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The state's effort to kill marauding
feral hogs that do thousands of dollars in damage continued last

The Kansas Animal Health Department, with help from the federal government, has been hunting the hogs in south-central and eastern Kansas since 2006 - on land and by helicopter. They also trap the hogs during the year.

About 250 private landowners cooperate with the effort. Helicopters also fly over 224,000 acres of public land.

Since 2007, the USDA has killed more than 500 hogs from a helicopter and trapped more than 200 on the ground.
