Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
An Oklahoma House committee approved a bill today that could help bring down the feral hog population.
The bill would allow certain individuals to hunt feral hogs by aircraft.
The bill was approved unanimously by the Agriculture and Wildlife Committee.
So far some ranchers are supporting the bill because the feral hogs cost them money.
"I'm glad to see it, it's a good thing," said Bob Burkhart, a rancher. "Like I said, farmers and ranchers need help. It's expensive."
If the House Calendar Committee approves the bill, it will be available for a hearing on the House floor.
