Last week, a bear was spotted roaming UK’s campus in Lexington. Since then, KSR sources have tracked the bear off campus…did it make its way to Richmond? Can bears walk that far in a week? According to Google Maps, the distance between UK’s campus and the Orchard Hills subdivision is approximately 32 miles and would take a human almost 11 hours to walk.
Or, are there multiple bears roaming residential areas in the Bluegrass? Are they plotting to take over now that the pandemic has us all staying inside? Are they hungry and looking for honey? Does this actually happen all of the time and none of us knew or cared because life used to be normal?
I’ve got a lot of questions, but unfortunately, no answers.
