Wilderness hero Canada hails U.S. teen

for bravery against bear

The last time Kelly McConnell was in Canada, he was nearly killed trying in vain to prevent a bear from fatally mauling his mother.

, was back Friday to receive one of Canada's highest awards for bravery. Honored along with him, posthumously, was the Canadian man who died saving Kelly's life by wrestling the bear off the wounded boy.

Kelly and Ray Kitchen's widow were presented with the Star of Courage medal by Canada's governor-general, Romeo LeBlanc, during a ceremony at the Citadel, a historic fortress in Quebec City.

The star-shaped silver-and-gold medal is awarded for ``acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril'' - which certainly applied to the events of Aug. 14, 1997, at a campground in northern British Columbia British Columbia, province (2001 pop. 3,907,738), 366,255 sq mi (948,600 sq km), including 6,976 sq mi (18,068 sq km) of water surface, W Canada.

 near the Yukon border.

Kelly and his mother were walking in the park when they came upon an underfed, ravenous male black bear munching plants along a pathway. Unprovoked, the bear charged Patti McConnell and threw her to the ground.

Kelly, 13 at the time, grabbed a stick and began hitting the bear until it turned on him.

Alerted by screams, Kitchen, 56, rushed to the scene and hit the bear in the face with a stick to try to force it away from Kelly. When that failed, Kitchen jumped on the animal's back.

Five other men from the campground arrived to help, hitting the bear with sticks, while a Felton, Calif., woman, Ingrid Bailey, tended to Kelly's wounds. Another camper shot and killed the bear moments later.

But the reinforcements were too late to save either Patti McConnell or Kitchen, whose head was severed by the bear's claws.
