It's funny because the kid's a hick

Just when you thought 5-year-olds weren't dangerous, think again.
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.
A number of questions arise, but the one we'll focus on is, why was a 5-year-old hunting? Maybe the obvious answer is that he is a descendant of Davy Crockett, who fucking slayed hundreds probably killed some people in the Texas Revolution.

Regardless, wild shit happens in Arkansas. And here's a quote that will likely further current stereotypes of Southerners.

"I was up in the stand and I seen the bear," Tre Merritt said. "It came from the thicket and it was beside the road and I shot it."

Is this kid just out in the wild without parents? Seriously, who lets a 5 year old shoot a gun?

Don't complain. We need more kids w/ guns. Cause I seen bears all over the place.

You missed the part of the story where it was mentioned that Bobby Petrino was with them. He, too, refuses to pay the Bear Tax.

Petrino also refuses to help the Falcons dig themselves outta that ditch Michael Vick threw 'em in.

Lots of kids hunt in the rural midwest... Not everyone is raised up on video games, smog, and shame.

^^^I grew up in the Midwest, too. Hunting is for rubes.
