While we wish him a speedy recovery, this story is cracking us up!
A fella from up near Texarkana was woken up at 3 am by a noisy armadillo outside his house. His wife reports he got up and went outside to take care of the ruckus…when he started yelling for help.
Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe said…”His wife was in the house. He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo,” Rowe said.
The animal’s hard shell deflected at least one of three bullets, which then struck the man’s jaw, he said.
The man was airlifted to a nearby hospital, where his jaw was wired shut, according to Rowe.
The status of the animal is unknown. “We didn’t find the armadillo,” the sheriff said.
