BEDFORD, Va. (AP) — Hunters and trappers can win cash prizes for killing coyotes in Bedford County.
The county's coyote lottery begins Wednesday and runs through mid-March.
The News & Advance reports that participants receive a lottery entry for each coyote killed. There's no limit on entries.
The top prize is $2,000. Second prize is $1,000, followed by prizes of $500 and $200.
A drawing is set for March 15 at noon at Bedford's Central Virginia Community College center.
County officials launched the lottery last year. Nearly 100 coyotes were killed.
