SECTOR REPORT: Several eyewitnesses have reported bears in the area bounded by Walker's Store Road, Cumberland Parkway, and the Green and Metcalfe County lines. They include:
1) The Moss Cemetery incident. Last year a large bear trailed hunter Tony Bragg from the woods above Moss Creek to the edge of the Cemetery. It weighed about 300 pounds, Mr. Bragg says
2) Rex Bennett saw a lone bear early one morning while driving to the Keltner store.
3) Mike Younger followed a cub for about a minute along the Walker's Store Road.
4) Elroy Coffey is reported to have seen bears here.
5) Loren Bennett saw two bear cubs behind a barn on Bennett Ridge Road near the Metcalfe County line.
6) Diane Thiery saw two cubs from a distance of 150 yards here.
7) Henrietta Coomer saw a large black bear come out of the woods and stand up.
8) Ronnie and Elva Jo Coffey saw a sow and two cubs in the Wild Patch near their home at Keltner. The Coffeys watched the bears for about five minutes, aided by binoculars.
Other non-bear but notable sightings not on map
1) Morris T. Keyes has spotted a timber wolf at his retreat near cool springs, in the middle of the map above.
2) A wild boar is reported to have been seen in Corbin's Bend.
3) Wild turkeys are taking over. One spotter counted 47 in a field south of Columbia.
