They're cute and cuddly, but unfortunately, they're also a big headache for some landowners.

We're talking about Black-Tail Prairie Dogs and a new bill would make it a choice between kill or contain.

County leaders - could control the colonies. That's if the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog Management Act passes.

It's up for debate this week.

That type of dog breeds, runs through landowner properties, and digs holes which could cause livestock to hurt themselves. Some landowners kill them, while other contain them.

But if prairie dogs get out of control, a bill would allow counties to rid of them.
