Bear spotted by BJ Fudge on Crocus Creek, Adair Co., KY

2011-03-16 - KY 704, Adair Co., KY - Photo by BJ Fudge.
BJ Fudge spotted a black bear well within the boundaries of Adair County. It was on the South Side of KY 704, a full 4,000 feet north of the Cumberland County border. The sighting was made 8:50amCT, today, Wednesday, March 16, 2011. "I hollered to see if I could make him move, and he did. From a great distance, I couldn't estimate its standing height or weight." The field is owned by Travis Coomer, part of the O.P. Petty farm. Travis Coomer is skeptic. He doesn't think there is a bear on his land. But there is. Bears have also been sighted at the confluence of Burns Creek and Crocus. While black bears are rather common in Cumberland County, they have only recently seemed to drift into Adair. BJ Fudge said he was able watch the bear about three minutes before it disappeared into the woods. The top of the ridge line is Southwest of the Jessie Sullivan place on Melson Ridge.
