[JURIST] US Vice President Dick Cheney [official biography] has received a citation for breaking a Texas hunting law by not having the proper stamp giving him permission to shoot quail. The warning was issued by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department [official website] after hearing news that the Vice President shot fellow hunter and Republican lawyer Harry Whittington over the weekend. Cheney has forwarded the appropriate $7 to cover the cost of the upland game bird stamp.
Whittington suffered a minor heart attack [AP report] Tuesday after a portion of the bird shot moved into his heart and lodged there. AP has more.
