Monroe County Attack Incident

Most of us are aware of the report that came out on Sunday September 2nd (2018) of the animal slayings on Eddie Denton's property in the Bill Butler Spur area.

Eddie Denton, property owner says that he was on his way to feed his horses early in the morning when his world changed.

"I just so happened to look down here at the pond because all the ducks were coming up there and I saw that [horse] floating in the pond down there and I thought 'Well my little one got in the pond and drowned down there.'" So Denton looked for the other horses. He found another one of the miniature horses there at the pond and the third lay dead in the stable. Also dead was a husky dog.

The original report mentioned three dead horses, leaving the reader to surmise they were the usual size and type, not miniatures, and claimed two dead dogs. The husky is dead and the pit bull/boxer mix is said to have several wounds but is alive.

The Monroe County Sheriff's office responded to investigate the incident. Their assessment was and still is that the deaths were caused by either a large cat or other large animal.

The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife also arrived to look around and took the bodies to examine. They are stating that the animals' wounds are inconsistent with a large predator attack. At first they said they had no idea as to what could have caused the wounds or launched such an attack. At last report, it is being said that they have now decided that the wounds are gunshot wounds.

The Sheriff still disagrees with their conclusions.

There were some tracks around but somehow not enough to be conclusive.

"One track over there was a bobcat. There is a large track over here, but I'm not an expert on mountain lions. I'll send it to someone else and see what he thinks and I'll know in a day or two what he has to say about that," stated biologist Lynch on Sunday.

Sheriff Dale Ford had this to say that day : "It's got characteristics of a big cat. The puncture wounds, the bites and stuff. If there is a threat, we need to let the people know. I don't know what it is, but I know it's big and I know it's deadly and if it can do that to those horses, it could do a lot to a child or even a grown man. That's my concern."

Denton is said to have put up trail cameras around to try and catch the animal if it comes back.

So where it stands now is Sheriff vs. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. Many have come forward and said they do not trust the Wildlife people to release the truth of what happened. They believe they will cover up the truth in order to keep the people from panicking. It is said that they are still denying that there are big cats in the state even though countless residents have reported seeing them and have proof on various trail cameras and other film.

So now I move on to what people are saying around the country.

Some, like the Wildlife people, have dismissed the cougar or mountain lion theory. They say that the animal would never take on two adult dogs (nowhere have I read the age or size of the dogs) and full grown horses (miniature horses, not regular sized horses and again, no mention of age or size).

Others say it must be humans.
Or Canadian Wolves.
Idaho grey wolf.
Pack of wild dogs.

And they say not a Black Bear because a bear would not take the risk or waste the energy.

And, of course, we come to the ones who are shouting out BIGFOOT!

We have the theory of the "revenge killing". That the bigfoot is angry for some reason; perhaps because someone in Denton's household was feeding them and then stopped. So they got angry and came in and killed his animals.

And they are answered by those who say that a bigfoot would not have done this as revenge. That if it were angry for whatever reason with a human that they would go after the human. After all, haven't there been lots of stories of a bigfoot going on killing sprees against humans? (No, not in my experience. It seems to be a Hollywood thing with the revengeful bigfoot attacking and killing humans.)

Others argue that it would not have been just a 'pleasure" killing by bigfoot because they need a good reason to just come in and kill. They don't kill for sport. (Well, that is comforting to know. Guess they are on a level higher than humans after all. )

And then, last but not least, we have the ones who say it is a pack of dogmen.

Well, there you have the story as far as I know it. I think that officials are praying and hoping that the story dies down, as they continue to whitewash the event and try to blame it on humans and ignore the evidence that appears to point towards some sort of animal attack. Sheriff Ford states that there is no evidence at this time that humans are involved in the deaths of the animals.
