1st Mountain Lion Spotted in Kentucky Since the Civil War is Immediately Killed

Mountain Lion

Mountain Lion

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.
