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 Fox13Now.com 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.”

凱利一家人已吃過悠閒的週日早餐,但顯然清理得不如自以為的乾淨。據NBC-2報導,一小塊培根油脂還停留在營地烤肉架上,已足以吸引一頭熊的注意。

兩名營地工作人員過來警告凱利一家人正接近有熊,就在此時,十一歲的貝登‧凱利已採取行動。

貝登開始尖叫,以便吸引熊的注意。他讓熊轉移注意力的時間,長到足以讓大部分家人跑向附近一棟小木屋。

然而,也許是被這情況嚇到了,他的小妹妹茉莉亞沒有跑。

「我說,『跑啊,茉莉亞』,可是她沒跑,所以我過去跟她一起跑,就在這時那熊開始追我們,」貝登說。「等牠跑到我們後面約十呎時,我弟(羅根)飛快地從小木屋跑出來,然後叫得很大聲。」

貝登告訴Fox13Now.com,他「很害怕,因為茉莉亞,而且她還小,無法為自己奮戰。所以我決定要那樣做。」
