BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Naropa University has withdrawn its application for a city permit to kill about 100 prairie dogs on the school’s east Boulder campus.

The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/1QZ0oaH ) that the Buddhist university had applied for the permit this summer. Activists criticized the move for a permit.

University spokesman Bill Rigler says the school has promising leads on possible relocation sites for the prairie dogs.

Naropa officials say they have spent four years and $100,000 researching non-lethal removal options.
