The Mountain Lion Has Come East

Back in December of 2014, I noted that a mountain lion
had been shot in Bourbon County, Kentucky, and there was a good chance it was a wild lion that had come east from South Dakota

Now it looks like I was right. 

A few weeks ago a live mountain lion was photographed on a game camera along the Kentucky-Tennessee border.This lion is likely a young male on walkabout, same as the earlier Kentucky lion, but it's only a matter of time before a female comes east (or comes north from Florida) and things expand from there.
