A Truly Empowered Young Woman

There’s so much that I could say about this story, I don’t even know where to begin.  First of all, either I haven’t been paying enough attention, or our American MSM is once again, showing their bias, by not reporting it.  This story was first published on February 16th, by the UK’s Daily Mail.  That’s England, sports fans.  I did a Google search on it, and there are a million articles about it, now, but they’re all 48 hours old or less.  Why wasn’t this girl on the Today Show or Good Morning America?  Hmmmm?  Anyway here it is.  I got a lot more to say about this, but don’t have time right now.  Look for more on my next post in “Practical Prepping”.

'She wasn't scared a bit': How girl ELEVEN grabbed gun and shot dead cougar that was stalking her brother, 13, outside their house

  • Shelby White, 11, killed her first cougar on her grandfather's ranch in Twisp, Washington, last week
  • Female cougar had been spotted near family's home twice in the days prior to the shooting
  • Shelby's 9-year-old brother, Cody, shot a 125-pound cougar earlier this month
  • Tanner White, 13, Shelby and Cody's oldest brother, killed a big cat near the ranch around same time
  • Shelby has been hunting since she was 8 or 9, and so far she has bagged herself three deer
  • State officials and hunters killed 10 other cougars during the winter season




When Tom 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. Fearless: Shelby White, 11, is posing with a cougar she shot dead last week on her grandfather's property

'This cougar was very, very skinny,' State Fish and Wildlife Officer Cal Treser said.
The fearless 11-year-old took action when she saw the cougar following her 13-year-old brother as he was walking towards their home in the town of Twisp, population 940.
In a phone interview with MailOnline Wednesday night, Shelby’s grandfather, William White, revealed that it was a fourth cougar killed on his property in the past several weeks.
Mr White, 64, a cattle rancher, said that earlier this month, Shelby’s 13-year-old brother, Tanner, also shot a cougar that has been circling his farm.
‘We're real avid hunters,’ Mr White said of his clan, which he described as 'backwoodsy.' .
The rancher explained that until recently, local residents were able to keep the cougar population in check by hunting the predators with dogs, but two years ago, the local Legislature outlawed the practice.Danger: An 11-year-old girl was the latest Washington resident to kill a cougar like this one (this particular 125 pound male cougar was killed the week before by a state official)

‘She looked out, and there was this cougar,’ Mr White recalled.

Update: This story illustrates why a conservative philosophy and prepping go hand in hand.  All those liberals out there, either the ones just living off the government, or the ones hell bent on destroying the traditional moral values of this country, they're going to be the first ones swept away if SHTF, simply because they never learned how to survive, and you know that they're not going to take the time to learn how now.  Click on the "Practical Prepping" tab just below the Golden Geese header.

  1. First thing I though of while I was reading this article was.."Bet that cougar was either sick or starving to willingly stalk a human. " The urban people wouldn't know what to do and there will manufactured outrage with a 11 year old girl handling a rifle*the horror* and shooting a defenseless animal. A lot of these wacko loons believe that the humans are a locust on the planet and we should eradicate our selves. I have had some of them tell me this.

    1. The population of this country can be divided into two groups. Those who think the girl did the right thing, and those who didn't. We have a $17 trillion national debt. I fear that the end of life as we have know it to be here in the U.S. is rapidly coming to an end, and we will return to something that more closely resembles the equilibrium which had existed for 99.9% of human existence. Many of the people in the first group will survive. Virtually all of the people in the second group will either be swept away, or will rapidly evolve into people who have adopted the thinking of the people in the first group.
