We have black bears that have migrated into the area. With the Elk in Eastern KY and the horses that have been released on strip jobs and with more and more of wildlife habitat being destroyed
it would reason that we would start seeing more and more wildlife come into the area to feed because they are predators and Elk deer smaller wildlife is good eating to them they have to move as their natural environment is being invaded and wiped out by mankind it is just part of the circle of life they are trying to survivor the economy is bad for them too. Leave them alone they will usually leave you alone don't feed them if they come to close to home fire shot up in air they will scatter.

Bears, wolves, and cougars are in more danger from humans, then they are to us. I have seen people kill snakes because they don't like snakes, and little do they know, snakes kill rats that carry infested fleas [which carry several kinds of diseases: Bubonic plague, Salmonella, Rat-bite Fever, and Leptospirosis - Rats and mice are both carriers of this potentially fatal disease]. Snakes are another animal that are endangered because of humans, then they are to us.

These animals people are talking about, will shy away from humans, unless provoked. Every time we hear of an bear attack, someone provoked the animal, causing the bear to attack. You have to ask yourself, would you stand there and let some idiot throw rocks at you, poke you with a stick, or shoot you with pellet guns? You know no one would, well, that's how the bear feels.

It is sad that animals don't have a lot of places to live anymore. People have taken over most of the places where wild animals could live. We can expect to see more and more wild animals coming into populated areas, there is no where else for them to go.

I seen a cougar once, it didn't roar, that's why I don't think cougars can roar. The only cats who can do this are lions, tigers, leopards and jaguars. Cougars are vocal and can hiss, "scream" and purr like any other cat, but I don't believe they can roar.

I have 4 small children ---oldest 11 and he wants to play in the woods, but I am afraid he will run into a bear or something and I won't let him play in the woods behind our home. He gets quite angry with me--but I have heard so many rumors about bears, big cats and such I am afraid for him to go in the woods alone.

Anymore sightings? Would love the opportunity to see one in the wild. The only shots I would take would be with my Nikon camera. Had the opportunity to take pics of a bear in the Smokies, a gator in New Orleans. It was awesome.

Panthers, Mountian Lions and Cougars are one in the same and we DO have them in Breathitt. They sound like a woman screaming for her life. Not roaring noises.

I think if we give these animals some space, I don't think they'll give us any trouble, especially if Kentucky keeps a good supply of game for them to hunt.

I don't realize where you all get your information, but I know as a witness that they're moutain lions in eastern kentucky, on trail cams set up there has been moutain lions dragging deers across, also there was a moutain lion dragging a deer across the four lane towards Jenkins that stopped vehicles. Also, maybe 2 weeks ago there was a bus driver who took a picture at elkhorn of a black panther in front of her bus. This is all 100% fact.

What? You have to be lazy if you can't seek and find all by yourself. You wouldn't believe any facts.Stop asking for links to this or that.Start looking.
