My uncle lives on Kentucky Lake in Dover TN. The only strange thing he has heard of is sighting of Cobra snakes. The sightings stopped about 5 years ago. I remember the local police did assume it was true since a cop supposedly saw one. But they assumed it must have been a Cobra that was let loose in the wild by someone who had it as a pet. Also they assume since the sightings stopped it must have died due to the climate.

But i got a lil fishing story abt Kentucky Lake. I was doing some early morning bass fishing casting towards shore from my uncles bass boat when i was 15. I was fishing in about 4ft-12ft of water using a jig. As i was reeling the lure in slow along the bottom I had something take the jig. So instantly i set the hook. Right when i set the hook whatever it was took off immediately ripped the line outta my reel of my fishing pole. It had to be big, I was using 18 lb line & a heavy duty reel & pole. My only conclusions of what it was came to being either a huge catfish, a huge drum or sheaphead fish or a huge turtle. I wish i would of caught it.

This is the only strange animal from TN I've seen recently.

They call 'em Tennessee bird dogs.

Yup, and for a minute there I was laughing so hard I forgot how to post pictures. It should come up ok in the thread now.

I'm not sure if this animal was in TN. I think it happened in Maryland. There was a creature running around. It was identified as a hyote..or some crossed dog breed with mange. Poor little guy. At first people thought it could be a thylacine, but when I saw the images of it, I knew exactly what it was right off the bat. A Red Fox with terrible mange.

Here are some pictures www.jimmyakin.org...

I don't know, I received it in an e-mail from my brother, an avid bird hunter, as a joke about TN bird dogs. If there is some problem with posting it here, I would hope a mod will remove it, as I am unable now to edit the original post.
