PORTHILL, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho baby sitter shot and killed a 422-pound black bear that broke into a backyard where three toddlers were playing.

Henslee said her 3-year-old daughter Brooklyn and twin 2-year-old sons Cleo and Charles were playing in the backyard of their home on the Canadian border early last week when Brooklyn alerted their aunt by shouting “Bear! Bear!”

Henslee said her sister looked up and saw the bear running out of the woods toward the backyard. She grabbed the three children from the yard and ran inside the house, shutting the door.

After taking the children into a bedroom, the woman loaded a 7mm hunting rifle and returned to the back door, where the bear had pawed the screen door and broken the door frame.

When the bear looked away from the door, Henslee said her sister opened the door slightly and shot twice, killing the bear instantly.

You Go Girl! Obviously, a righteous shooting candidate.

Note that this incident happened south of the Canadian border, otherwise things may have turned out ugly … without access to well, you know, guns.

I can vouch for the 7mm as a potent, flat-shooting Javelina stopper. Evidently it’s also a whole lot better than nothin’ against bears as well!

Hug them kids, and shoot safe out there.
