11YO Girl Kills Coug Stalking Brother

An 11-year-old girl shot a cougar that was following her 14-year-old brother to their home at Twisp, in north central Washington, the state Fish and Wildlife Department said. You've got to admire the girl: Not only did she have a cougar tag, but she put it to good use. Read the story here. The female cougar killed last week was about 4 years old and weighed about 50 pounds — half of what it should weigh, said Officer Cal Treser. It's the latest in a rash of cougar incidents in the Methow Valley this season/Rich Landers, Outdoors. And: More here.

Impressive, hunh?
