87 year old woman kills bears

Postby bigh0rt » Thu Jul 12, 2007 7:14 pm

HAWKE'S BAY, N.L. (CP) - Bears roaming the woods of Newfoundland's Northern Peninsula have met their match in Cecilia Smith, an 87-year-old grandmother with a quick shot.

For the second time in less than a month, Smith found herself eye-to-eye with a black bear outside her cabin Saturday in the rural community of Hawke's Bay, N.L. The 140-kilogram bear was trapped in a snare Smith had set three weeks after she shot another black bear dead prowling outside her cabin.

She then grabbed her gun, shot it and later took it to a nearby dump.

This comes three weeks after Smith, who holds a licence to hunt bears, shot a 200-kilogram black bear dead on June 19.

She laughs off suggestions she narrowly escaped two vicious bear attacks within the span of three weeks, saying she's just having a little fun.

What's with all these old people doing insane things lately? I'm barely 24, and I hate getting off the couch. :-b
