Brothers run at bear to save younger sister

Two bears are seen at a bear sanctuary after having been taken from a private zoo located next to a pizza restaurant in Prizren, Kosovo on May 23.

The Kelly family had a relaxing Sunday morning breakfast, but apparently they did not clean up as well as they had initially thought. According to NBC-2, a bit of bacon grease was still on the campground grill, and that was enough to draw the attention of a bear.

Two staff members of the camp came to warn the Kelly family that a bear was close by, and that is when 11-year-old Baden Kelly sprung into action.

Baden began screaming in order to get the bear’s attention. He was able to distract the bear long enough for most of his family to run into a nearby cabin.

However, his little sister Moriah, perhaps due to the shock of the situation, did not run.

“I said, ‘Run, Moriah,’ and she didn’t run, so I got to her and I started running with her, and that’s when the bear started running after us,” Baden said. “By the time it got to about 10 feet behind us, my brother [Logan] came running really fast out of his cabin and shouted very loudly.”

Baden told that he “was scared because of Moriah and she’s just little, she wouldn’t have been able to fight for herself. So I had to make a choice and do that.”
