Don’t worry, Jane Seymour is just fine.
Most of the stories we feature here are defensive gun uses against bad guys. However, in this case we have an 11 year old girl defensing her brother not from a violent criminal, but from Mother Nature.
According to media reports, a female cougar attempted to follow and 14 year old boy into a basement door of his home in Twisp, WA.
The boy’s sister, shot and killed the animal before it could become a threat. The cougar is described as being nearly 40lbs under weight, which could explain its desperation in blatantly approaching people.
The girl has a permit to hunt cougars, so there was no issue with the shooting.
