JEFFERSON COUNTY, KU -- Conspiracy theorists have tried to prove the possibility of aliens, sea monsters, and even shape shifters, now there is a mystery in Jefferson County. Kenny Mahoney, born and raised in Fairdale, snapped a picture of what some people are calling Big Foot.
His hunting camera, which is operated by a motion detector, normally picks up rabbits, deer and turkeys, but on September 1st around 2:15 p.m. it picked up a strange image that looks like some sort of large black creature, one Mahoney estimates taller than he.
"It looked like it had the outline of a head, and like gorilla type shoulders, and then the arms crossed is what it looks like to me," said Mahoney.
Mahoney said it would be very hard for him to believe Big Foot is living in his backyard, but is stumped as to what else it could be.
"One of the explanations my brother-in-law said it may be a garbage bag in there, but all the smashed over vegetation in there - I really don't know," said Mahoney. "I have no idea what it is."
Mahoney's wife Margaret sent the photo to a wildlife expert who specializes in black bears. She said it looks like it is fur and not a trash bag, but still cannot confirm it is a bear.

Looks like an ACORN census worker to me.
Hahaha, that guy is funny.
The farmer has too coy of a smile to take this latest Bigfoot photo seriously. Someone was testing out their latest Halloween costume on the cameras.
The question is will the farmer gain financially?
I wear a size 10, so don’t look at me!
michelle obama was in Kentucky?
And I thought it was bad when snails were eating my garden...
Man. I think the guy needs to invest in a better trail camera! And, why would “Bigfoot” come under the “conspiracy” umbrella? Unless of course they are talking about the Bigfoot community keeping it all under wraps. And I suppose that means all the other woodland creatures are in on the secret too.
Me - I think it is a bear. Or - his BIL in a monkey suit. Never know on Bigfoot though. I’m surprise he didn’t look for tracks, a tuft of hair, etc.
It’s Cousin It!

Michelle...trying to figure out what a real garden should look like so the one on the WH lawn will be featured in “Authentic County Farmin’” Magazine...it’s a “roots” thing...
Photo of a vague dark blobbish shape. Could be any number of things. Could definitely be a hoax perpetrated by the guy himself or maybe a local yokel wanting to punk him.
