Coyotes an Increasing Problem in Virginia

This isn't news to Virginia hunters.  There have been increasing reports of coyote sightings by hunters, but now suburban residents are seeing more of them.  Coyotes are in every part of Virginia.  Last night, WTVR CBS 6 had this story.  Coyotes are playing havoc with the Commonwealth's deer herd and on small game, and even kill domestic animals in suburban areas.  I had a coyote on my trail camera two of the last three winters.   I've noticed a reduction in the number of deer I have had on camera this year, seeing only one doe/fawn pair, when in years past I had several family groups on film during the summer.
