It sounds like a big cat got loose from somewhere, like a zoo or personal collection. Large tiger, lion, etc maybe even a puma or jaguar.

For those supposing "Grizzly" there are no Grizzly bears in Kentucky- try Alaska and Canada for those. Also for those who guess "Coyotes" the local sheriff"s is quite familiar with animal bites and tracks and they are guessing some kind of big cat. Big cats have been making a comeback in Kentucky over the last few years, as have black bears which have even been seen the last few years swimming back and forth across the Ohio river back and forth between Kentucky and Indiana.
All of the animals were found in the same area early Sunday morning. I find it hard to believe that either a single big cat or bear would kill 3 horses and 2 dogs in one night all alone, and neither the bears or cats have been seen traveling in packs. The local officials guess "cat or some other large animal" but we wont know for sure until wildlife officials from Frankfort have finished their investigation.
I would like to add ( for my own amusement) that if an unknown Cryptid was behind the attacks it would be logical for officials to blame them on a more common large predator so as not to alarm the public as greatly!
