I've lost 4 cats around Sedalia, have no idea what is taking them...heard coyote pups before out here but have never seen any...anyone have pets missing around this area?
Sounds like coyotes. They will eat cats and small dogs. I imagine a cougar would too though. Me and a neighbor here in the north part of the county have had small dogs go missing from the back yard. I know of another person about 1/2 mile from me had a small dog disappear not long ago also. I'm afraid one of these days it will get to where keeping pets unprotected outside will be pretty much impossible.

Black panthers are in Hickman county. Yesterday while deer hunting I was watching 3 doe about 70 yards away. They got spoked and ran. 2 large black cats jumped up and started chasing them.

Saw a cougar in the 70's on the McCracken/Graves County line west of Melber at the underpass on the Edgewood RR tracks (in the middle of the road). It was NOT a bobcat, nor anyone's housecat.

The animal ambled across the road on the East side of the R R, from South to North and entered into the brush along the small creek there. It was a bright sunshine clear autumn day. I was traveling about 45 to 50 mph going East, and got within about 60 to 75 yards of it.

An elderly friend, whom was a lifelong hunter, lived at this spot. Just the week before he had told me about his hunting dogs getting after it on the railroad right of way about 10 pm one night. He went over with a light and gun and the cat broke across his farm on Mayfield Creek Bottom (West side of RR)with the dogs in pursuit. They didn't catch it. He had hunted Mayfield Creek all his life, his dogs had many encounters with bobcats. He said it was a mountain lion, or "PAINTER" as the old timers called them around there.

There is a very large black panther out on my parents property in Cuba (South Graves on 303). It stays in the woods in their field and along the creek bed, but they have seen it and heard it several times. I've even heard it out there.

I've been reading online about several mountain lions being seen in Kentucky (as well as in all surrounding states). It is the typical tan colored mountain lion as well as a black panther (which "they" say does not exist even though hundreds have been seen) that has been spotted. The "officials" are responding that no one has seen such, that they are mistaking the big cats for a house cat, a black lab, a coyote or something else. The ones that they don't deny that someone has seen they say "must be" a big cat that someone raised as a pet and either it escaped or they set it loose. I don't think there have ever been that many pet mountain lions kept in this part of the country! lol From what I have read, a lot of people who have seen them hesitate to report it because they don't want to be called a liar, stupid, crazy, etc.
Have any of you seen one of these big cats or have you heard of anyone seeing one in Graves County or a nearby county??? Have you been told stories about them from your older relatives??? I know they have been spotted in LBL but I am wondering about here in Graves County.
I'd love to see one but I don't suppose it will be so neat if one chows down on my dog...or me! Beautiful animals but definitely not a joke.
I have also heard that black bears are moving in. I was told that one has already been spotted in the county. I recall when coyotes didn't live here and I sure don't recall white-tail deer being so common when I was a kid.
(*Note: I am talking about four legged cougars, not two legged which are already so common here! lol)
..IDC if I'm not believed,I know what I saw,plain as day...During the early evening in Brewers,Marshall County...It was No Doubt An Amazing Beautiful Mountain Lion..I'll Never forget it for the rest of my life...It was crossing Soldier Creek...

A wildlife woman (don't know her name) was just on Leno. She had a 9 week old black Jaguar. She said in the past they lived across the US but now the only one living in the wild in the US was in Arizona. She said they live in South America, about 15,000 left. I do believe she is mistaken.

There have been confirmed road kill of mountain lions and/or mountain lion cubs in kentucky but wildlife officials say there is not a breeding population in kentucky that these were captive animals that escaped or were let loose by there owners and got killed on the road . I saw a tv show where something was killing a Texas mans cattle and they put up trail cameras and got pictures of a black leopard and u could see the leopard spots in the black of the leopards fur. They said this leopard probably worked its way up from South America through Mexico.
John you do not know anything about big cats because if you did you would know that leopards are only native to asia and africa not south america

I landed on this forum because I went searching online... I've been told by a few people in Kentucky that the DNR are planting big cats in the area! Black panthers specifically. We have lost 10 chickens in the last couple of weeks.. Something is killing and eating them... So I thought I would go online to see if there is any truth to this rumor. I found nothing... But this conversation regarding the mystery behind why authorities are denying their existence really makes me wonder :(

I know this is an old post but I am 99.9% positive I saw a mountain lion tonight stalking my chickens in bell city ky.. (Southern graves county). I am going to set bait. Traps and hunt the next few nights and try to kill it and confirm they exist as wild cats not PETs. Any advice on how to lure it out of the corn would be appreciated
saw one

In 1988 I got divorced, moved to Breckinridge county ky hardinsburg ky. 34 years old moved back home. With dad & mom. Couldn't take that but with no money. And no job. I had no choice! My mom had a relative who had a farmhouse. No one had lived in the house in 20 years. No running water just a well rope and bucket. Out end of miller ln 4 mile from hardinsburg on 261 Behind house was a root celery, door was open about a foot. Or so. Claw marks on each side of fallen down door. It scared me! I got dad took him and showed him. He said "just don't go outside at night and whatever it is. Will leave when you move in the house! I moved in febuary 1988 4 months went by I didn't go down into root cellar. And I stayed in house at night didn't mess around outside much then June 8th. I stayed out 1 am. Driving back the old mud road I dropped my 67 Chevrolet. Front wheel in the ditch got stuck. No flashlight no gun I got cold! Decided to chance it! As I walked in the pitch black night I heard something stalking me! A thick fence row stood between me and the road. I would stop. It would stop. The corn field was waist. High I could hear it in the corn. I would stop. It would stop. I'd go it would go. a 50 feet break stood between the fence row and the front door to the old house. I heard something parting the stalks of corn. I ran for my life. Heart beating my throat! Made in the door! Flipped porch light on nothing! I had a habit of always having a bowl of cereal before bed. So I walked through the house to. The kitchen flipped the light on. I heard a loud roar!!!!!! Less than 10 feet at the back fallen down screen door! It been watching me 4 months knew my pattern and there it was peering out of the blackness at me. I couldn't shut the wooden door to the kitchen. If I moved toward it. It roared louder. A knife lay on the table near the other kitchen window. I lunged for the knife. But it met me at that window. I retreated to the bedroom. I had a single barrel shotgun. That would not eject a shot shell. Got in the bedroom corner and waited. Till daybreak. And snuck out. To the car. It went from window to window for. 2 hours raising hell! Ill post the rest of the story later
