MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– A family in Madison County says they think they’ve captured a Mountain Lion on their home surveillance camera.

The Tates say that their dogs were acting strangely on Friday night. When they checked the surveillance footage they saw a big cat. The family also says they believe they found a large footprint.

While Kentucky does not have an active Mountain Lion population, occasionally the predators will wander in from other areas.

The family says that they hope the large cat moves on so they can feel safe for their pets.
