Nearly two weeks ago the Commonwealth learned something killed three horses and two dogs in Monroe County. Three days ago another animal was found mysteriously dead. Some have panicked. Many continue to speculate. We still don’t have answers. Folks in Monroe County have had to be extra careful watching their pets and kids, and I don’t blame them. Some of the braver folks have set out to try and capture the animal, person, or whatever is responsible.
I searched the depths of Twitter to see if we could find what was responsible. I think we need to keep looking:
Here’s the tweet Shannon referenced on today’s Kentucky Sports Radio. I’m not so sure one of these would kill a big dog. It’d be a good fight. Also, I like that STD had to convince himself several times that it was fake. He definitely wanted to believe it was real:

This one also seems fake:

Some of the experts have assumed that it’s a cougar or mountain lion. Many conspiracy theorist are saying it was Big Foot. What if both were right?:

This could actually be our culprit below. It’s only about 100 miles from where this mountain lion was spotted in Tennessee to Monroe County. I’m no big cat expert, but surely they could walk 100 miles over the course of a few days. Then again there was another dead animal three days ago, so who really knows.
Here kitty, kitty! Another mountain lion spotted in Tennessee. This one was caught on a trail camera. The story tonight at 6p pic.twitter.com/BR3Wd1N70w

In all seriousness, continue to be on the lookout in Monroe County. I’ve seen actual pictures of the deceased animals and I wish I didn’t. It’s not pretty. If an animal is truly doing this I wouldn’t take my eyes of my pet. Be safe, folks.
