Meet LaRue County’s Hornet Man

Some people would undoubtedly call him crazy.

Jerry Cooper, known to some as “The Hornet Man,” has made a habit of something that scares most people: collecting hornet nests and, often enough, the hornets that are inside.

Cooper works as a custodian for LaRue County Schools. But when the call comes that someone needs a nest removed, he leaps into action.
