Former U.S. Marine kills bear with log

An ex-U.S. Marine killed a 300-pound (136-kilogram) black bear over the weekend when he threw a log at its head to keep it away from his children.

The bear had taken the family's cooler from their campsite and was returning to the woods when Chris Everhart's 6-year-old son, Logan, threw a shovel at it.

Fearing what might happen next, Everhart grabbed the closest thing he could find - a log.

"(I) threw it at it and it happened to hit the bear in the head," Chris Everhart said. "I thought it just knocked it out but it actually ended up killing the bear."

Everhart was given a ticket for failing to secure his camp site, said Ken Riddleberger, a region supervisor for game management with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

"We've not had (a bear) attack in Georgia," Riddleberger said. "The key thing to learn from this is if there's a bear around, do not have your garbage or food available. If we manage our food, we won't have bears around."
