About a dozen coyotes have been roaming around a Lamar County, Miss. subdivision in recent months and some residents say they fear the animals may be dangerous.

Resident Bobby Morrison says he and his neighbors first noticed a family of coyotes, two adults and two pups, in the woods behind their properties a few years ago.

Now, Morrison says there are anywhere from 11 or more roaming the neighborhood.

County supervisors have voted to pay more than $4300 for the coyotes' removal.

Morrison says he's concerned because the animals are starting not to fear humans.

Biologists say coyotes are possibly the most adaptive animals in North America.
