But Canadians Don't Need Guns...

FOXNews.com - Man Pulls 12-Year-Old's Head From Cougar's Jaws - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News A kid on a camping trip in British Columbia is attacked by a cougar.
Patterson's quick action was credited with saving Colton Reeb who was on a camping trip near Clinton, northwest of Kamloops, when he was attacked by the mountain lion on Wednesday.

The cougar pounced on Reeb while he was walking to a bathroom close to the Kelly Lake Vacation Lodge. Patterson, who owns the lodge, jumped in to rescue the 12-year-old boy, a family friend.
He kicked, hit, and eventually growled at the cat before it took off. Too bad he didn't have a weapon.

The cat was eventually killed by the authorities.

No, you don't need firearms to defend yourself or others from attacks by wild beasts, not in Canada. It is like living in Narnia. </sarcasm> [Hat Tip]
