Joe Coffey sends photo bear swimming near Wolf Creek Dam

2013-08-29 - Near Indian Creek, Above Wolf Creek Dam, Jamestown, KY - Photo From Joe Coffey, Montpelier, KY. Joe Coffey sends this photo sent to him by his nephew, Jason Coffey, who works for Norton Healthcare in Lousville, KY, was was with a friend who took the photo. Joe Coffey said this black bear was swimming in the lake and that the far side in the picture is near the Indian Creek inlet toward the Clinton side of the lake. "There's no way to really judge," he said, "but I'd think the bear would weigh around 300 pounds." For other Blue Ribbon Bear Board Members, and others, the location is about 26 miles from Downtown Columbia, KY, where BRBB members believe, Bears probably crossed before the Long Hunters disturbe there peaceable bear way of life - back then eating most blackberries, croppie and just an occasional ancestor of ours. - EW
