Wildlife officials are trying to track down a Black bear that has been spotted in Western Kentucky.
A family from Ohio County took a photo of the animal and officials say that is the bear they've been searching for.
"We definitely saw a pattern. It's extremely unusual for a bear to be here," said Wildlife biologist Scott Harp. "We definitely saw a pattern and wanted to investigate, and we came across some good trail camera photos."
Wildlife officials say they suspect the bear was forced out of its territory by another Black bear and is wandering around trying to find himself a mate.
