No Rest For Critters As Virginia Lawmakers Move To Lift Ban On Sunday Hunting

Play associated audio

Sundays will no longer be considered a day of rest for Virginia hunters or the wild birds and animals they pursue. The Virginia Senate is moving forward with the bill that would repeal the state's ban on Sunday hunting on private property.

The bill had previously passed the House and a spokesman for Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe's says the governor intends to sign it into law.

Proponents of the bill say current law is outdated and hurting the state's hunting economy. Opponents say the ban made Sundays safer for nature lovers.

Virginia law currently states that Sundays are "declared a rest day for all species of wild bird and wild animal, except raccoons, which may be hunted until 2 a.m. on Sunday mornings."
