Something killed a pony and ten miles apart killed a few calves.
If you all want our bears you can have them... seriously.


We don’t want your bears!
There is a group of idiots in TPWD that does. The last bears were killed out of the thicket in the 1930’s. Now we have warning signs on every lease to not mistake a hog for black bear along with all the penalties.

Sorry. Its not consistent. Its not worthy of a gap analysis. Try to be consistent. Try to be honest.

Each and every person in your neighborhood or circle of influence is described in a derogatory manner. We can be assured that you describe the folks here in this forum with derogatory names. Its just who you are.

So sorry you are so miserable with life. Such a shame.

On a more positive note, I did set my game cameras back out. Not necessarily to get the cougar, but I just like seeing what goes on in the woods. I found a trail, with no tracks, just a well worn trail. I did find other trails and saw faint hog tracks, heck, hogs have trouble leaving tracks in the woods.. Then there was another trail by a big pond..I'm going to try to not go back for at least a week, but heck, I want to go get the cards at sun up. I just need to forget I put them out....


The calf size is now changed. Dramatically. A huge change from the size you originally stated.

Now it was curled up on a leaf covered forest floor. But you didn't actually see that. Nor did you see the cougar. So how do you know it wasn't bawling for momma?

You are consistent on no tracks Not even during the attack. You're also consistent on a vet told you this happened.

During the original story I wrote off many thoughts as to you were likely confused. The evolution of this story and changes thereto destroyed all credibility.


Most of CG8's stories are that way.

All the time growing up here, the top predator was domestic dogs, ringtails or a fox. I was late teens or maybe even 20 before seeing a coyote then thought it was some strange looking stray dog at first. Soon after that started hearing others talk about coyotes and within a few years they were thick. Over the years black bears have repopulated in east KY and have steadily moved west. 3 years ago we got a call out of the blue from a person raking hay on the back part of the farm, a bear had ran out of thicket and by the tractor. A neighbor had a trail camera out and got a mother and cub on it. I saw one come out of a thicket on another neighbors place and it just ran out and turned and went right back, happened so fast I thought it was a black calf. Then last summer, had a garden down in a hay field, and was down spraying pre emergent herbicide when one came down out a tree, about 30 ft from me. I froze didn't know what to do, but when it got to the ground it must of ran off couldn't see for all the honeysuckle bushes along the fence row. Our tomato row was demolished one night, I figure the bear was the culprit cause it had gotten weedy and a wide swath was mashed down and tomatoes were gone. Later in the fall a lot of the locust trees that tend to loose limbs as the trees die out seemed to come down rather quickly and be debarked, as well as some fence post that were maybe not in great shape but would have lasted a little longer were dug into I reckon they were looking for bugs. It's kind of interesting to have them around but at the same time it looks like they can be destructive.

It actually started way long before that Bright Raven. The thing with TexasBred started with Lammie 8 or so years ago. He doesn't like me and I am okay with that.

I do not have an engineering degree. I never finished college. Worked for Stone and Webster Engineering for 7 1/2 years before they hired me direct 25 years ago. There are several certifications to my name and it is no big thing. As for now I am thinking 10 more years before I retire but it could be at any point. No way am I going to go back to college. No way will I go into management no matter how many times they ask me to. Just not my thing.

Thanks for that explanation.

Personally, I don't even hesitate to say this, the most rewarding, fun, exciting years of my life were in college. For many, many, reasons not to bore you with. I have often relished the idea of going back to study anthropology - specifically the field of human evolution. I guess I still could. My mind is still sharp but short term memory sucks. I can still recite the Latin name of every snake in Kentucky but I could not remember your first name 15 minutes after you told it to me. I still have good cognitive skills but short term memory would be a problem.
