First of all, why would someone even shoot an armadillo? Is this a new trend? Hunting armadillos for fun? We hope it’s not, because someone can actually die from such a silly idea.
Someone got seriously hurt, because the bullet ricocheted off the animal and hit him in the face. This guy from East Texas was injured after he fired a gun at an armadillo in his yard.
Yes, it sounds wired to just go out and shoot an armadillo. But there’s no background story here. The unnamed man from Texas saw the animal around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning and opened fire. He probably wanted to get rid of the armadillo, but things didn’t go as planned.
“His wife was in the house. He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo,”Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe said.
Armadillos are pretty tough little guys, and that’s exactly why a deflected bullet hit the man in the jaw.
