CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - The city of Clovis has finished applying poison at a park in a bid to reduce the prairie dog population there.
The Portales News-Tribune reports that the last bit of poison was applied Friday at Ned Houk Park.
Earlier this month, city commissioners approved a plan to poison the prairie dogs after several landowners near the park complained to commissioners about the burrowing rodents.
Up to $25,000 was approved for an emergency budget transfer to purchase 250 containers of rodenticide to reduce the population of prairie dogs at park.
