Texas Man Shot in Face after Bullet Ricochets off Armadillo
August 03, 2015
It doesn't get much more Texas than this.

For a reason known to the shooter and nobody else, a Texan man decided that the best way to handle an intrusive armadillo on his property was to take his .38 Magnum and shoot it.

It backfired. Not the gun, but the shooting of the armadillo. Because, you see, armadillos have these unusually tough exteriors. When something like a bullet meets this exterior, it's not at all surprising for the bullet to ricochet, as it did in a previous armadillo shooting when a Georgia man shot one and the bullet ended up in the back of his mother-in-law.

This time around, the bullet ended up in the man's face. The man had to have jaw wired shut, but a full recovery is expected.

The status of the armadillo is unknown.

Of course if an animal is going to evolve to be bullet proof, it'd be in America

Who needs "a good guy with a gun" when you've got free armadillos?

If my knowledge of Texas is correct, this means that the armadillo now is Governor.

My favorite part of the story. The status of the animal is unknown. "We didn't find the armadillo," the sheriff said.
