“Lee County Sheriff’s deputies say 54-year-old Larry McElroy fired his 9 mm pistol at the armadillo Sunday night,” reports. “Deputies say the bullet killed the armadillo, but bounced off the animal, hit a fence, traveled through the back door of the mother-in-law’s mobile home and the recliner in which she was sitting, striking her in the back. McElroy’s 74-year-old mother-in-law, Carol Johnson, suffered injuries described as non-life-threatening . . . Lee County Sherriff’s deputies say McElroy was about 100 yards away from the home when he shot the armadillo.” Click here for the video on the story. And no, it’s not April 1.
