Washougal, Wash., resident Gloria McCourt was working in her
garden one evening as her 5-year-old daughter played nearby.
Suddenly, a 250-lb. bear emerged from the woods and fixed its gaze
on the little girl. "I looked at that bear as it was looking at my
baby, and something happened. I turned into the mamma bear," said
McCourt. She was convinced the bruin posed an immediate threat and
resolved to protect her family. Grabbing a .357 Mag. handgun,
McCourt "got a bead on [the bear] and hit him in the neck." Then,
with the assistance of two workers from a local fish hatchery, she
trailed the animal into the woods. The posse soon found the beast
expired. Capt. Murray Schlenker of the Washington Department of Fish
and Wildlife later explained that, like most 'nuisance' bears, the
one McCourt dispatched was probably nosing around because it "had
become addicted to garbage."
