Were did you you snap this shot? Just generally... was wondering if it was in Knox as It would be a great thing if the herds have grown and are expanding since they were implanted...

They are already in Knox...Up on stinking creek/big creek area they knock over fences like bull dozers. Head up to one of the strip mine areas, you'll see plenty of them.

That means the herd is thriving. I know the bear population is going way up.. Saw a trophy sized black bear over north of the Falls... Now if we can get some wolves, badgers and beavers coming back ....

Beaver are everywhere...I mean everywhere. River otter are showing up in some places in Knox. Badgers I don't think are found in this area...they seem to live in the flatlands.

I've always found it quite amazing, how those little Beaver's can build those dam's better than human's could. It's a beautiful thing to me.

When this area was first settled there was all kinds of such animals in these woods. But people hunted them out for food and pelts to sale for income. It's good to see them introduced again, but I wonder if there might not get to be an overpopulation. My land is already overrun with deer and you have to fence your garden. Also, a lot of people live in the mountains and may not get along too well with panthers, bears and wolves.

Always a problem of game management after you establish a reproducing population. Hopefully Kentucky's Natural resources folks will tailor the hunting permits to the population as it grows... Could be a good income source from the region if the population becomes large enough to draw hunters from outside the state...

The Elk herd they implanted in Northern Michigan is a cash cow for the locals up there. During season everybody gears up in the little town and roads to supply sporting goods, restaurants, camp supplies and groceries... Plus it was around a 1000 tags given out in the lottery when I was up there at 10 bucks to apply and 35 bucks if you draw a tag... Michigan paid for winter feed and manpower to manage the herd without a dime from tax payers (or Animal Rights folks)...
