That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

WOLFE COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A hiker was rescued in Wolfe County after he fell more than 80 feet Saturday night.

According to Wolfe County Search and Rescue, the man was camping at an overlook on Sky Bridge Road in Devils Canyon, when he tripped and fell off a cliff.

Rescue teams were called out at 10:40 p.m. They were able to get the man to safety just after 2 a.m. Sunday with the help of Powell County Search and Rescue.

Crews say the man has multiple traumatic injuries, but he is expected to recover.

Wow, 80 feet. That man is lucky to be alive. I can't imagine the narrative going through his head during the 2+ second fall into a complete black void.
