Coyote killing program a waste of money

Editor’s note: This week’s guest editorial is by Kathy Dowell of Galax, who has been an outspoken critic of Grayson County’s coyote bounty program, and a “killing contest” that rewards the hunter who turns in the most dead coyotes. After the program recently ran out of its first $5,000 allocation, county supervisors put $5,000 more into it. With that money gone now, too, one supervisor has donated his own money to the fund and the county is asking citizens to donate prize money, too.
