Scott County officials fear re-emergence of coyotes, 28 Jan 2003 [cached]
Although county officials have not received any reports of livestock being killed by coyotes recently, Scott County Extension Agent Scott Jerrell says it is just a matter of time before the predator makes its presence known, again.
The Scott County Board of Supervisors enacted a coyote bounty in 2000 to help landowners after thousands of dollars in livestock were destroyed by coyotes.
"We know from experience that coyotes are not the easiest things in the world to kill," said Jerrell."With our sheep population on the rise in the county, it would not surprise me to see the coyote population to grow with it.It's inevitable."
The sheep population was one of the driving factors behind the 2000 coyote bounty, where the county paid individuals $50 per pelt brought in to the Scott County Landfill.
Jerrell estimates the current sheep population to be about 1,200.
The latest concern about coyote control stems from a line-item reduction from the state budget by Gov.
We could be looking at enacting extermination measures on a local level, which would have the farmer killing the coyotes themselves," said Jerrell.

As a result, Boyd said Scott, ..., 24 July 2009 [cached]
As a result, Boyd said Scott, Lee, Wise and Washington counties have gone from experiencing the only extreme drought conditions in Virginia last year to having some of the best rainfall overage totals in the state.
Even though the area is in good shape when it comes to rainfall totals, Scott Jerrell, an agent with the Scott County/Virginia Cooperative Extension, said evidence of the drought could remain visible for some time.
"Most of the trees and things like that are still seeing the effects of the drought, and that's just because the trees are so large it takes a long time to show any damage," he said. "They don't just turn around in a day's time. It's going to take a couple of years for them."
Because of the overage, Jerrell said Scott County would not seek any disaster relief funds for drought this year.
The heavy rains experienced that year kept conditions from becoming even worse in 2007 and 2008, Jerrell said.
"The National Weather Service shows that from 2003 to 2008, we are now 5.5 inches above normal," Jerrell said.
