Large Mystery Cat Sighting In Kentucky

Ashland, in northeast Kentucky, is having some mystery cat sightings.

Ashland Police Maj. Todd Kelley said two people have called in reports of seeing a mountain lion or cougar around the city in the last several days. Kelley told The Independent that the sightings haven’t been confirmed by animal control officers or police, but people should not approach any unfamiliar large animal.

“We thought it was maybe more like a wildcat but they said it was bigger than that,” he said. “We said mountain lion or cougar species in the press release because we don’t know what else to call it.”

Animal control responded to the sighting on Forest Avenue but didn’t spot the big cat, he said. Still, Kelley said, the sightings were enough to warn the public about the possibility of big cats around the city limits. Source.
