Hikers come across black bear in Red River Gorge By Mike Linden | Posted: Mon 3:05 PM, Sep 19, 2016 | Updated: Mon 5:24 PM, Sep 19, 2016
WOLFE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Just before 8 p.m. Saturday, two hikers spotted a black bear near the Chimney Top recreation area in the Red River Gorge in Wolfe County.
After a few minutes on the phone with Menifee County 911, the bear eventually walked away.
According to Daniel Boone National Forest officials, it's rare to see a bear as far north in Kentucky as the Red River Gorge. They say the most likely reason why the black bear was so close to the area was to find food.
"There is a saying, 'a fed bear is a dead bear,' because if a bear gets used to getting human food it's going to potentially get more aggressive," Red River Gorge Manager Tim Eling said.

jamiekaj: I'm new to climbing (been in the gym for about a month now) and am looking for partners to get me to the gorge and back (from Lexington) / teach me a few things. I have gear (minus a rope) and could provide pizza, gas, and beer.
