It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Don’t Mess With Momma Bear

While paying for the gas she’d just pumped into her car, a mother in Everett, Washington, was horrified to see a man get into her unlocked car – which had her eight-year-old daughter in the back. “He could have my car,” said Ms. Trapp, “Just not my daughter.” He didn’t get either. Five-foot-five Ms. Trapp, fuelled by the desperate adrenaline of a mother whose child is in peril, hauled that six-foot man right out of her car. The would-be thief called her crazy. While I couldn’t say for sure what I’d do in that situation unless I were to find myself in it, I bet the mom saw it more like this: which is crazier — to take a risk to save my child, or to stand back while she’s stolen away?

Me, I think it’s crazy to get between momma bear and her baby.
