One hunter saved the life of another who was being mauled by a bear. The two were scouting for deer on Chichagof Island, Alaska. “They heard a ‘whoof’ and then a brown bear emerged from the brush, charging at them,” troopers wrote in a media release about the shooting. The bear—a sow that was with two cubs—pinned one hunter on the ground and was clawing him before the other hunter sighted in and shot the bear. The man who was mauled was airlifted to a hospital where he was treated for his injuries. (adn.com, Juneau, AK, 10/2/16)

The Armed Citizen® Extra
Late one Wednesday evening, a group of suspects, who are believed to have committed or attempted up to nine robberies over a three-day span, entered a Burger King with intentions to rob it. As the group attempted to rob the establishment, shots were exchanged between the suspects and a patron who had a concealed-carry license. The suspects left the scene in a vehicle matching a description from earlier robberies. Later, police stopped a vehicle that matched the description and arrested two adults and three juveniles and preliminarily charged them with robbery. The customer who exchanged gunfire with the suspects will not face charges. (The Indy Channel, Indianapolis, IN, 10/5/16)
