Texas Woman Shoots Husband Instead of Skunk

Baisha Kreuzer4 years ago

While attempting to shoot an unwelcomed skunk on her front porch, a woman from Texas missed and accidentally shot her husband instead. According to a report by NBC news, the woman was just trying to eliminate a skunk problem from her house and instead wound up with a bigger problem.

Bullet Ricocheted Off Porch

The accident happened Sunday night as the woman and her family were home in a subdivision just south of College Station, Texas. Brazos County Sheriff Christopher Kirk did an investigation on the matter and confirmed that the action was indeed an accident, according to NBC news.

The woman fired her handgun at the skunk and the bullet missed, ricocheting off the porch and into the back door, where her husband was standing and was struck in the abdomen. He was shortly airlifted to a hospital in Houston, where it was confirmed the bullet did not hit any vital organs and he was discharged on Monday.
