  • Leave injured and orphaned wildlife alone

    Wildlife Biologists with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources recommend people to leave wildlife alone that appear to be abandoned.
    People pick up seemingly abandoned wildlife with the best of intentions, but do more to harm the animal than to help it.
    As a general rule, wildlife do not make good pets and are not truly abandoned when found in the wild. White-tailed deer and other species of wildlife leave their young for extended periods of time each day, only to return and take care of them.

  • PSC ends state low-income subsidy for wireless phones

    The Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) is revamping the state program that provides assistance to low-income telephone customers and refocusing it on meeting the needs of the mostly elderly and rural customers who rely on landline phones.
