INDEPENDENCE -- Grayson County’s coyote killing contest launched last month is apparently attracting its share of attention – not so much from participants, at least not yet -- but more from folks opposed to it. The contest is a follow-up to the county’s coyote bounty program that started in March. While county officials say that, as of last week, 28 individual hunters had killed 45 coyotes total since the bounty program started, a petition calling for an end to coyote killing contest had reportedly received more than 700 signatures.
