Coyotes could be shot night or day under a bill that appears headed for passage in the Kentucky Legislature.

The dog-like animals have proliferated across Kentucky to the point that lawmakers are being pushed by constituents to do something about it.

What has become one of the most popular bills of the year breezed through the House and appears to be on a fast track through the Senate as well.

The Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee passed the measure 10-0 on Wednesday and sent it to the full Senate where it is expected to pass easily.

The measure would allow hunters to use shotguns and lights to kill coyotes at night. Already, they're fair game during daylight hours.
