TAYLOR, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas city is working on trapping at least 20 feral hogs that are wandering on and tearing up parts of a century-old cemetery.

The public works director for Taylor says city officials would like to catch the hogs as easily and quickly as possible so the damage to Taylor Cemetery will be minimal.

KVUE-TV (http://bit.ly/1BCCoSW ) reports the damage so far has been limited to undeveloped portions of the graveyard. The city last week hired a professional hog trapper who’s built and baited a trap.

A biologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department says trapping a hog can be difficult. He says it usually takes up to 2 weeks before a hog will trust a trap enough to go into it.
