12-Year-Old Girl Survives Bear Attack on Jog

Abby Wetherell’s mind was preoccupied: her soccer team had just lost their goalie to a broken leg, and she knew she had to man the net at an upcoming game. As she jogged along a trail in her neighborhood, a black bear came out of the bushes, and though Abby ran, it caught up with her. Only by playing dead – after already having been mauled – did Abbey get the bear to retreat. Bear attacks and Abby’s story are powerful reminders that when we face more than we can handle, it’s okay to relax. It even helps to rest in God’s strength and protection! See her quick thinking and selflessness in the video below!
