Officer Donald Jewell was patrolling the outskirts of the city early Thursday when he spotted something unusual.
The headlights on his cruiser revealed something big and black and four-legged walking along the edge of the roadway on KY 1618 – the connector road of Lincoln Parkway.
Jewell radioed dispatch to report what he thought was a black bear wearing a red collar.
“I thought I’d lost my mind,” he said.
“When he heard the radio, he turned sideways and looked at me,” added Jewell.
