September 12, 2019 GMT

BURLINGON, Vt. (AP) — A homeless camp on private property in Vermont has been cleared out.

Rick Davis, owner of the land, says the clear-out Tuesday was for vegetation maintenance, invasive species control and waste control in preparation for placing the property on the market.

WCAX-TV reports this is the second homeless camp cleared; another was cleared by the state off I-89 in South Burlington.

The ACLU challenged Burlington’s policy of clearing homeless encampments.
