14-Year-Old Alaskan Shoots Kodiak Bear in Self Defense
Wildlife officers determined that Roberts shot the bear in self defense. In the face of a bear charge, even experienced hunters have been known to freeze up, but the teen showed considerable courage and quick thinking by downing the bear at such close range. That act may have very likely saved the his life and the life of his uncle.
“Not many 14 year olds would stand their ground against a charging bear, getting a clean kill shot while protecting his elder. Alaskan made and grown!” wrote on commenter on Facebook.
