How girl ELEVEN grabbed gun and shot dead cougar that was stalking her brother, 13, outside their house

  • Shelby White, 11, killed her first cougar on her grandfather's ranch in Twisp, Washington, last week 
  • Female cougar had been spotted near family's home twice in the days prior to the shooting
  • Shelby's 9-year-old brother, Cody, shot a 125-pound cougar earlier this month 
  • Tanner White, 13, Shelby and Cody's oldest brother, killed a big cat near the ranch around same time 
  • Shelby has been hunting since she was 8 or 9, and so far she has bagged herself three deer 
  • State officials and hunters killed 10 other cougars during the winter season
