Leo Craddock continues to kill encroaching coyotes on his river farm


Leo Craddock killed two coyotes on his Little Kanawha River farm after they were spotted circling a cow and calf.

It's not the first time Craddock has encountered coyotes, who have long been entrenched in a remote area where the river weaves its way through the forest between Big Bend and Cabot Station.

"They've always killed my cats," Craddock said, and over the years they are coming closer to the house in the large meadows.

On cool fall nights, the cry of coyotes in the area can be heard for miles, echoing from the river valley.

The population of coyotes in Calhoun is ever increasing.
