Residents in the McBrayer section of the county were looking for an animal that had been killing chickens.
Reports were that Mrs. James W. Waterfill had lost a number of her chickens including a dozen fryers; Burton Sale on Harrodsburg Road also lost chickens.
The animal is reported to be lager than a dog or fox and has been seen by several people in the community. They have been unable to identify the animal.

If no nudes is good news, there was a lot to rejoice about near the Fairview area of western Anderson County.
Kevin Hux, who had been trying to start a nudist camp just over the line in Washington County, had apparently lost his fight. The state Court of Appeals had ruled that it could not force Washington County Judge Executive Bobby Brady to grant Hux a license.
Hux, 40, of Brothers Lane, Willisburg, had sought a writ of mandamus; a legal ruling that forces an official to perform his duties.
Circuit Judge Mike Hall dismissed Hux’s request, and Hux appealed.
The Court of Appeals noted that Brady had twice acted as required by law, denying Hux a license both times.
The Court of Appeals, in its ruling, noted that a writ of mandamus cannot be used to make an official or agency rule a certain way.
Moreover, the three-judge panel ruled, since nothing of significance had changed between Hux’s first application and his second, that Brady did not abuse his discretion in denying the second application.
Because of the ruling, Simms said, “I would say it’s over — hopefully.”
Hux first tried to open Cedar Hills Naturist Club in 1994 on 81 acres of land near Willisburg.
Under state law, anyone who wants to operate a nudist camp must get a license from the county judge-executive. The judge must decide whether the person is of good character. If not, the judge is supposed to deny the license.
Brady asked Springfield Police Chief Larry Tousignant to check into Hux’s background.
Tousignant found that Hux had run a massage parlor in Lexington and that the woman who co-owned the land had a record for prostitution in Anchorage, Alaska, where Hux formerly lived.
The Kentucky Association of Vocational Education Special Needs Personnel chose Wanda Chandler, a special education teacher at Anderson County High School, as Teacher of the Year.
