A 51-hour hog vigil will end Thursday in downtown Raleigh.

The purpose is to draw attention to how hog waste affects the environment. The main goal is new laws to end sprayfields and help clean up industrial hog farms.

The vigil, held behind the state Legislature Building, started at 3 p.m. Wednesday and will end at 6 p.m. Thursday.
