Ohio County Family Finds Bear Raiding Feeder
A family in Ohio County got an unexpected visitor to its deer feeder.
The family caught a black bear on camera eating from the feeder. Wildlife officials suspect the young bear was either forced out of its territory in eastern Kentucky or Tennessee by another black bear and is wandering around.
In June there was a bear sighting near Mammoth Cave and on July 12 five people in Daviess County reported they saw a bear near Masonville.
Experts say the bear appears to be a small and estimate he weighs between 100 and 150 pounds.
