Loudoun Co. launches deer lottery

By Washington Post editors

The Loudoun County parks department is holding a different kind of lottery this year -- one where the winners get a chance to hunt deer, the Washington Examiner reports.

After spending four years studying the health of deer at Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries determined that overpopulation was harmful to the deer.

Loudoun County residents who want to register for the hunting lottery must pay $10. Nonresidents pay $15. The deadline to register is Dec. 13, and the 25 winners will be notified the next day.
