COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) -- A trapping firm hired by Columbus city officials to rid neighborhoods of wild hogs has made progress.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that the company, Jager Pro, trapped and killed seven of the animals over the weekend.

Company founder Rod Pinkston says he thinks concerns about the animals along Chattsworth Road are resolved for the time being, but other areas could still see problems with wild hogs. He said his company has set up bait sites in a couple other areas which are being monitored.

Pinkston said he expects his company and the city to get more calls as the acorn crop continues to dwindle, forcing the hogs to roam and root more.

The city contracted with the company after receiving growing reports of wild hogs encroaching on residential areas.
