Lady Shoots Husband, Claims She Was Aiming At A Skunk! Yeah, Right!
"A Brazos County woman told authorities late Sunday that she accidentally shot her husband, who was rushed by a PHI medical helicopter to Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Sheriff Chris Kirk said the call came in before 9:30 p.m. from a home on Wayfarer Road in Nantucket, where the wife said she was attempting to shoot a skunk with a handgun. The man was hit in the abdomen; his condition wasn`t known late Sunday."
In my humble opinion the woman had her hubby in her sights, not too many people try to kill a varmint with a .45 handgun. Either the woman really was trying to kill the skunk but she`s a poor shot, or she`s an excellent marksman who nailed her target.
If the husband survives his wound he would be well-advised to divorce his wife, or at the least get rid of all the guns in his home.
To be fair I must give the woman the benefit of the doubt, maybe her husband is a lousy drunk who stunk to high heaven and she mistook him for a skunk.
But there`s something really smelly/fishy about this incident.
