When Thomas White spotted a cougar approaching his teenage son outside their home in rural Washington state last week, there was only one thing to do - hand a gun to his 11-year-old daughter.
Without a moment's hesitation, Shelby White killed the female cougar, and wildlife officials suggested that the animal may have been sick.
The mountain cat was 4 years old and weighed about 50lbs, which is about half of what an animal that age should weigh.

Eleven year old Shelby White: more of an independent, brave, strong, self-sufficient, and intelligent human being than 86% of Obama's voters. And Obama.
Oh, and she knows how to use a gun.
She ought to be on the cover of Time magazine instead of the internet geeks who SUPPOSEDLY fixed the disastrous Obamacare web site....which they didn't, but hey, memes have to be carried on, right, Time?
Uh, the girl in that picture doesn’t look eleven to me.
Cougar looked emaciated. WOnder why?
Good for her, but why did she shoot a dead cougar?
” shot dead cougar...”
Where can I get one of those?
Cougar looks to be in real bad shape, good for her to put it out of it’s misery.
Had to spent all its money on obamacare instead of food.
The girl ended the cougar’s life before the mac daddy death panel had the chance to do the same.
Ummm...how old does she look to you? She looks anywhere from 11-16, but girls/women tend to do that. They can look 16 at 11, 20 at 16, and 20 at 30. I was an 11-year-old that looked 16.
So how old do you think she is?
Global Warming. Algore told me so.
Obamacare and the economy. It hurts everyone. ;)
...and the cougar doesn’t look sick?
LOL!! No doubt true.
Well, it's always possible that the parents don't really know the age of their daughter :-)
My thoughts too.
“Uh, the girl in that picture doesnt look eleven to me.”
Perhaps you should exercise extreme caution if asked to buy a drink for a young woman.
Here is a description by Geronimo, of a cougar attack on Apache women.
“The four women who were captured at this time by the Mexicans were taken into Sonora, Mexico, where they were compelled to work for the Mexicans. After some years they escaped to the mountains and started to find our tribe. They had knives which they had stolen from the Mexicans, but they had no other weapons. They had no blankets; so at night they would make a little tepee by cutting brush with their knives, and setting them up for the walls. The top was covered over with brush. In this temporary tepee they would all sleep. One night when their camp fire was low they heard growling just outside the tepee. Francisco, the youngest woman of the party (about seventeen years of age), started to build up the fire, when a mountain lion crashed through the tepee and attacked her. The suddenness of the attack made her drop her knife, but she fought as best she could with her hand. She was no match for the lion, however; her left shoulder was crushed and partly torn away. The lion kept trying to catch her by the throat; this she prevented with her hands for a long time. He dragged her for about 300 yards, then she found her strength was failing her from loss of blood, and she called to the other women for help. The lion had been dragging her by one foot, and she had been catching hold of his legs, and of the rocks and underbrush, to delay him. Finally he stopped and stood over her. She again called her companions and they attacked him with their knives and killed him. Then they dressed her wounds and nursed her in the mountains for about a month. When she was again able to walk they resumed their journey and reached our tribe in safety.”
