Wisconsin Girl’s Bear-Hunting Dream Comes True at 11
Many little girls dream of being princesses or ballerinas or meeting Justin Bieber. But 11-year-old Kaitlynn Bessette of Stetsonville, Wis., had something else at the top of the list: bear hunting.
“I’m interested in hunting and fishing,” Kaitlynn told ABC News affiliate WAOW-TV.
Kaitlynn linked up last Saturday with the Pittsville, Wis.-based United Special Sportsman Alliance, a nonprofit organization that grants wishes for children with disabilities. She was diagnosed at birth with tricuspid atresia, a rare heart disease that blocks blood flow from the right atrium to the right ventricle.
