    I was on the river last night anchored up pretty close to the Kentucky bank. I heard some hissing/roaring, and it sounded like a mountain lion or something. So I shinned my spotlight up on the bank, and saw something big with 2 bright yellow eyes just staring at us. I know there are bobcats in Kentucky, but this just looked bigger than a bobcat. Is there any other types of big wild cats in Kentucky. I really couldnt tell what it was, but the noises it was making sounded like a cat of sometype. It was a little weird..And it kept its eye on us until I finally pulled up the anchor and left. LOL....Any ideas on what it could be?

    There are more lion sited on this side of the mississippi every year.
    Could be. I live 2 miles from kentucky on the cumberland river and have heard sounds like you describe at night. I also pull up anchor and leave. If there was only one set of eyes it may have very well been a big cat.

    There are too many reports of cougar reports in this part of the country for none to be here.A very reliable fellow I worked with had been making light of his wife's seeing one until he saw it himself.I live 15 miles south of Garrison,ky and the Ohio river.Check this old link out.
