TWRA Confirms Sighting of Cougar in Wayne County
tn.gov Monday September 26, 2016

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has confirmed the sighting of a cougar in Wayne County on property located in an area between Linden and the county seat of Waynesboro.

A trail camera captured the cat’s image on Sept. 4 and the agency, as it does when it receives reports accompanied by credible evidence, began investigating the report.

The wildlife agency has confirmed eight sightings since September 2015, with the previous five confirmations in Humphreys County. This is the first documented sighting in Wayne County.

A list of Tennessee confirmed cougar sightings can be found on TWRA’s website at www.tnwildlife.org.

Other states surrounding Tennessee are also confirming the presence of western cougars, which have been expanding their range for years.

There are no hunting seasons established on cougars in Tennessee. Anyone sighting a cougar, especially accompanied by supporting evidence, is asked to contact the TWRA. Telephone numbers and email address are listed on the agency’s website.

 


THP and TDOS Warn About Creepy Clowns
Peg Broadcasting News Monday September 26, 2016

Despite erroneously posting a photo of The Plymouth Clowns, a performance arts group out of New Hampshire, the Tennessee Highway Patrol is standing by its warning about creepy clowns.

On Saturday, both the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) and the Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOS) shared a picture of two clowns standing in a wooded area to their Twitter and Facebook pages. The caption on the THP Facebook post said, “THP wants everyone to watch for clowns trying to lure children in to the woods. They are possibly child predators looking for an easy child to target.”

On Sunday, after learning that the photo was a re-purposed picture, the THP pulled the photo and posted “The photo of the "clowns" was not a photo taken in Tennessee. This was a photo circulated throughout social media. While we want to provide awareness about the issue, the photo is not local. We continue to monitor this situation as it has been reported in Tennessee," stated Megan Buell, Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security Communications Director.”

Police say they will investigate all reports, but will also prosecute anyone who files a false report.
