Back in my home state (Washington) last weekend a pretty tragic accident happened. One boy (14) and one adult were out bear hunting. And before I go on, I will just state for the record that there is no law against a 14 year old that hunts and it is legal in this area for bear hunting.
Now Pamela Almli (54) was hiking with a friend around 10:30am last Saturday. Pamela stopped on the trail (which according to the reports was a very popular hiking area) and bent over to put something into her backpack. Then this accident took place. The 14 year old boy mistakenly thought it was a bear and fired a fatal shot.
I can’t imagine what both families are feeling or thinking right now.
Just a horrible accident.
