A Texas woman aiming for a pesky skunk that was feeding off cat food bowls outside her home wound up accidentally shooting her husband when the bullet ricocheted off the porch and struck him in the abdomen, a sheriff said.
The accident happened Sunday night at the family’s
home in a subdivision south of College Station, Texas, Brazos County
Sheriff Christopher Kirk said.
“Apparently they feed their cats
out of bowls outside the back of the porch. They had a skunk that had
been coming up there feeding. They decided they wanted to dispatch that
skunk,” Kirk told NBC News on Tuesday.
