Cheney unlicensed during hunting mishap

‘US Vice President Dick Cheney did not have a permit to hunt quail when he accidentally shot a 78-year-old hunting partner over the weekend, the White House says.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department informed Mr Cheney that he lacked a stamp for hunting “upland game birds” in the state when the shooting incident occurred, the Vice President’s office said in a statement.

Texas authorities said they would issue a warning citation to Mr Cheney but impose no penalty or fine for failing to have the stamp.’
