How to Spot Kud the Killer: A climbing vine that can reach up to 98 feet in length, tuberous roots that can be up to seven inches in diameter, each leaf has three parts and can be up to 4 inches in diameter, and flowers in the third year with small purple blooms.
Last Seen: Kud is originally from Japan but was brought to the southern United States. It was brought to control erosion and provide food for goats, cows, and pigs. It eventually got out of control when left unattended and began to grow over every surface. It grows over other plants, including trees, and blocks the sunlight eventually killing them.
Police Attempts: Herbicides and other chemical treatments have been used to detain Kud. Along with other attempts to cut the roots out of the ground.
Suspected Hideouts: Mostly seen in the southeast United States where it covers millions of acres of land. It grows over forests and human made objects alike.

Reward: The reward for stopping Kud the Killer is saving the native plants of the land, stopping the destruction of houses, and $10000000000000000
