Revenge of the bulletproof armadillo!
We thought people would have had enough of poaching for one week, but apparently not.
Don’t mess with Texas armadillos.
That is the lesson that one local man learned the hard way when he landed in the hospital with a bullet wound after trying to shoot one of the hardy armor-plated critters.
Officials in Cass County, Texas, say the man suffered a graze wound to the head when he fired at an armadillo and the bullet ricocheted off the mammal’s rigid protective covering and struck him.
