AK: 11-Year-Old Stops Bear Attack

A rifle on a sling over your shoulder is much slower to get into action.

“There was four of them in a line … my son was third,” Clark said. “The bear came down the trail at them, fella in the front, who was his uncle, the bear was on him so quickly that he didn’t have time to take his rifle off his shoulder.”

The bear ran through the first two men, who were pushed to the side of the trail, leaving Elliot Clark in front of his unarmed cousin. The boy raised his pump action shotgun and shot the sow, hitting it with birdshot, which is often used just to scare bears off, Lucas Clark said.

“His first shot was a light load of birdshot. That first shot hit him in the shoulder and did absolutely nothing. The next shot hit him in the nose and traveled down through the neck,” Lucas Clark said.

Sow bears are females. Or were before all this gender bending crap got started. The article as well as the source called the bear a sow and then went on using the pronoun "him" in discussing the bear.

You would be surprised how many people would not catch an error like that. I listen to an awful lot of reporters that seem to have no life experiences continually mispronouncing names of people and places. One guy on U-Tube continually questions word meanings of words he has never heard. I think he has lived in a closet all of his life.
