Tazewell County farmers are having trouble controlling the increasing number of coyotes that are killing sheep.
Local officials have been offering a 50 dollar bounty for each coyote killed and government trappers are also working to control the animals.
Animal rights groups, however, say bounties and trappings are cruel and ineffective.
Figures show coyotes are a problem across the state-- they killed more than 400 sheep, just last year.
