5 Year Old Boy Kills Bear
A 5 year-old boy in Arkansas killed a bear Sunday. Now that might seem like a pretty amazing headline right there, but wait…..the story gets better! It just so happens that the boy from Arkansas that killed this 400 pound black bear on Sunday is a relative of Davy Crockett! This is a true story and according to the grandfather, he spotted the bear and told Tre Merritt (5 year-old boy) to shoot the big black bear that was coming out of the thickett. That is exactly what Tre did and he killed the bear.
Now Davy Crockett killed his bear when he was only 3 years old. That is the way legend tells the story, but Tre’s grandfather doubts Davy killed a bear when he was only 3. Now Davy Crockett is the 10th great grandfather of Tre Merritt and I guess we would expect this from one of Davy’s kin folks. Tre’s dad said he killed 3 deer last year and that’s a pretty amazing story too. I just can’t imagine a 4 year old boy killing a deer. I have never shot at a dear and here is a 4 year -old boy in Arkansas killing them left and right.
If Tre’s legend holds up for as long as his great grandfather’s legend has, then you can expect that Tre will be a pretty popular man in his lifetime. I’m not sure where a 5 year-old that kills a bear can go from here, but I wouldn’t be surprise if he shoots a dinosaur or something big like that before he reaches puberty. That’s just an amazing story from Arkansas and I thought I would share it with you. Nice job Tre!!!Click here for reuse options!
