She killed her a bar, when she was only eight!

Well, the first bear of the season is dead, felled at the hands of 8 year old Sierra Stiles, who won the local bear-hunting license lottery. Of course, this has animal rights’ groups all kinds of freaked out, which is what I find amusing. She’s getting the bear stuffed, if you were interested.

    I saw this in the Express this morning and found it highly disturbing. I don’t agree with hunting in the first place, but an 8 year old shooting anything, much less a BEAR, is just wrong to me. :o

    Given that hunting is a popular recreation in this area, I’d rather children of hunters be able to display proficiency with the weapons their family uses for hunting…the alternative is haunting.
