    Been seeing them in LBL last 5-6 years, its a natural migration, and supposedly will not go much further north as they cant take the cold too well. You are allowed to kill them, no seasons, no limits.

    I live in Marshall County not too far from the northern entrance to LBL. See several every time we go over there. And believe it or not, they don't taste bad. Have lots of family in south Mississippi. They've been eating them for years. And they can't spread leprosy. They do carry the virus but can't spread it.

    I seen one in the woods this past weekend at LBL. Faster than I thought they would be. He had been digging around in a creek bottom and tearing apart rotting logs.

    Fellow I know told me he hit the one on natcher in warren county.
    And a large majority of leprosy cases in u.s. are attributed to armadillos by indirect contact. They root through flower beds and then people stop to straighten up their plants. So, they may not spread leprosy to people, but most of the people in the us who are diagnosed with leprosy each year have had contact with armadillos......

    Im 50, been catching them, killing them and sometimes cleaning them and eating them since I was 8. So far Im still half way normal after dealing with hundreds of them. They are not a threat to your health. Have a couple living under my shop right now. Dog gets one every now and then and he has no ill effects either.

    I had just left the house (east Calloway Co) headed to work one morning last week and I saw one hobbling across the road. Sped up and tried to get him but he reached the woods off the shoulder just a second before I did. Then, fishtailing to get back on the road a Robert Earl Keen song started going through my head.

    About 3 years ago I saw 2 dead in one week in Bullitt Co. Both were reasonably close to train tracks so I assumed they came from the south via train.
