Calhoun residents are well aware of the increasing coyote population, and their avoidant behavior to cling to remote, wooded areas.

Now comes a story from Morgantown about coyotes in or near the metro area.

U.S. Department of Agriculture employees have killed eight coyotes in a hilltop Morgantown shopping center complex and they aren't sure how many remain nearby.

The Town of Granville hired the USDA under a $2,600 contract last year to kill as many as 10 coyotes believed to be living behind the Wal-Mart at University Town Centre.

They were suspected of taking small animals and trash from the complex area.

The coyotes were shot at night and away from shoppers.
