Black bear population growing in middle Tennessee
AP/WVLT Friday August 19, 2016

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says the population of black bears in middle Tennessee has been growing.

TWRA statewide bear coordinator and biologist Dan Gibbs was quoted by The Tennessean as saying that the bears have been making their way to middle Tennessee from east Tennessee and Kentucky. He also says a number of bears have been coming from Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas.

The agency estimates there are currently about 6,000 black bears in the state.

Gibbs says one of the primary reasons bears have been sighted in the area is because of accessible food sources. He says bears are attracted to open trash containers, grills and bird feeders. He advises people not to leave food out for bears.

Peg Broadcasting News Friday August 19, 2016

Shocking allegations emerged as Caleb Cannon, the man accused of killing Nikki Burgess over two years ago, appeared for a motions hearing in a Nashville court on Thursday, August 18, 2016. His former cell mate testified that Cannon told him that he went to Burgess home in Hermitage and they got into a fight over alimony and custody of their son. The cell mate said that Cannon told him he beat Nikki with brass knuckles and then strangled her. The cell mate further testified that Cannon took the body to a farm in Knoxville where he used to work. Nikki Burgess, 36, formerly of Crossville, disappeared in May 2014 and her body has not been found. Authorities say cadaver dogs alerted to the presence of human decomposition inside Burgess home in Hermitage and also in the trunk of a vehicle registered to Cannon. Two men, who have yet to be identified, were seen carry something out of Burgess home on the day she disappeared. Cannon is due back in court on August 23.
