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 (http://bit.ly/HpJWTw ) 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.

A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
