Elderly Man Arrested for Defending Himself From Bear

Liberty is only a fading memory in a country run by kooks so authoritarian that an elderly man can be arrested for defending himself from a wild beast on his own property. From Taxachusetts:

A 76-year-old Auburn man is facing charges after killing a bear in his backyard.

Richard Ahlstrand told WBZ-TV he was stocking his bird feeder Friday night when a bear about seven feet tall and 300-to-400 pounds started chasing him.

That’s when he turned his shotgun on the bear.

“I didn’t have time to aim through the sights, but I aimed in the direction of the head on this thing and I pulled the trigger before it got to me. It just dropped,” he said.

Ahlstrand said he was carrying the shotgun Friday night because he thought he saw the bear in his yard Thursday.

“If that ever jumped on me, I wouldn’t even be here right know, I don’t think. I know it was going to seriously maul me,” he said.

Ahlstrand faces a long list of charges, prominently including the charge of killing the bear before it could kill him. Authorities claim the bear had cubs, which means the judge will not go easy on this cold-hearted creator of cuddly orphans.

“They got me set up now like I’m some kind of murderer. And then the environmental guy told me ‘You should have called me instead of shooting it.’ What was I going to do, say ‘Mister Bear would excuse me please while I go make a phone call?’”

An aggressive bear running amok in your backyard is only a minor inconvenience compared with aggressive liberals running amok in the government.
