Va. shoots down coyote hunting on Sundays


Cumberland Times-News

— RICHMOND, Va. — The state Senate has shot down a bill that would have let people hunt coyotes — and only coyotes — on Sunday.

Originally Sen. Tom Garrett’s bill covered a variety of “nuisance” species — crows, feral swine, grackles, etc.

But those other animals had been spared from Sunday predation by a committee amendment last week, leaving coyotes as the lone target — as it were — of the bill.
