Rusk County Battles Destructive Wildlife

      An east Texas county is making every effort to get rid of some destructive wildlife. Beavers and feral hogs have become a major nuisance in Rusk county, causing agricultural damage and even two fatal accidents on roadways. Rusk county commissioners approved a resolution Wednesday asking for 4-point-5 million dollars in state funding to combat the problem.
