ISHPEMING, Mich. (AP) - A legally blind woman has bagged a bear in the Upper Peninsula.
Jaime Villa says she's tried for several years to obtain the required tag needed to hunt bears in Michigan. The state holds a lottery for the tags.
This year she got her tag and a 110 pound black bear.
Villa tells WLUC-TV her "limited sight" only allows her to "see the difference between light and dark" and "silhouettes of people."
But, Villa says, with her boyfriend's help, she pulled the trigger from a tree stand.
