Coyotes in Bon Air, at Chesterfield Airport 

Style Weekly's June 11 report on the phenomenon of coyotes in the Richmond area has sparked more reports of the wily, big-eared, pointy-nosed dogs.ÿ
In Chesterfield County's Bon Air, a local bowhunter says he regularly sees coyotes while hunting deer near the state juvenile correctional center. A year ago his neighbor caught a coyote on film after installing a motion-sensor camera in the woods near his home.ÿ

There were more recent sightings about three weeks ago in Bon Air, county spokesman Don Kappel says. "The county airport informs me that they have had somewhat regular sightings of coyotes," he says. "That's kind of a new thing, as well."

Mike Fies, a wildlife research biologist for the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, says hunters reported killing at least 9,000 coyotes in the state from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007. He estimates there are about 45,000 to 60,000 coyotes in Virginia. -- Scott Bass
