Man defends his family from a bear that broke into his home. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of Everett Skinner, a resident of Grants Pass, Ore., who shot a bear that was standing in his living room. The animal had apparently ripped off the screen of the window in Skinner's house to enter, though he was not seen until Everett's daughter Nicole was awoken by a "shuffling" sound. Fortunately for the Skinners, Everett kept a shotgun that he had ready when his daughter alerted him to the unlikely intruder.
