Hey, did you hear about the 5 year old kid who killed a 400 pound bear? Well, now you have… and oh yeah, he’s a descendant of Davy Crockett. Figures.
DEWITT, Ark. Ã¢â‚¬â€ A 5-year-old Arkansas County boy killed a black bear Sunday weighing more than 400 pounds.
Tre Merritt, a descendant of Davy Crockett, was hunting with his grandfather Mike Merritt when a black bear happened upon their stand.
“His 10th great-grandfather was Davy Crockett,” Mike Merritt said. “And Davy supposedly killed him a bear when he was three. And Tre is five and really killed a bear. I really doubt if Davy killed one when he was three.”
I bet when Stephen Colbert hears about this he’s gonna have Ty on his show and celebrate him as a national hero. Those of you that have watched Colbert’s Threatdown will know that the number one threat to this country is always “bears”.
And I’d like to give a shout out to James Bishop for finding this gem!
