CLEVELAND, Tenn. (AP) -- State officials plan to meet with county leaders to address restrictions on hog hunting.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency representatives will meet Tuesday with local officials to discuss a request to loosen the hunting regulations.

At least five East Tennessee counties have approved resolutions asking the state to restart a "dedicated season" for hunting feral hogs in wildlife management areas and to allow property owners to use dogs to hunt the animals on private property.

The counties that have passed the resolutions include Polk, Monroe, White, McMinn and Bradley.
