Mountain Lions are native to Kentucky, or were before humans pushed them out 150 years ago. They remained established in the western US and Florida, but have been slowly re-entering habitats moving eastward, though it had been thought that the Mississippi River was as far as they had gotten, until one was spotted by a farmer in Kentucky this week. When wildlife officials arrived, it had been treed by a dog. An officer shot and killed it. There are no more Mountain Lions in Kentucky, again.
