ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A biologist with the Kentucky
Department of Fish and Wildlife says black bears are spreading
across much of Kentucky.
Brian Clark told The News-Enterprise in Elizabethtown that bears
have been spotted throughout central Kentucky and there's potential
for them to occupy areas of Bernheim Forest and Fort Knox.
The bears had kept mostly to areas east of Interstate 75 and
south of the Mountain Parkway until recently. He says bear
sightings have been reported as far north as Boone and Campbell
Bear sightings can be reported to Kentucky's Department of Fish
and Wildlife Resources at (502) 564-3402.
