Mouse hunting fail

Major mouse hunting fail:

A US man has been charged after police say he tried to shoot a mouse in his pantry and ended up wounding his roommate.

Christian Sunil Paul, of Taylorsville, was charged yesterday (NZ time) in Salt Lake City’s 3rd District Court in the US with one felony count of discharging a firearm with injury and one misdemeanour count of possessing drug paraphernalia.

The 27-year-old told police he was aiming at the rodent during the December 20 shooting, but the bullet went through the pantry and into the bathroom, where it hit Paul’s roommate in the shoulder.

The roommate was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Court documents show authorities also found small, empty balloons and burnt tin foil in a bathroom trash can.

I wonder if drugs had any effect on his aim?

He might have avoided the problem by using a more appropriate ammunition or light gauge shot.

    I once shared sleeping quarters with a bloke who blew away a mason bee with a 12-gauge.  It had annoyed him by persistently flying over his bunk to its nest in the wall.  Not that I approve mind you, but you would have to say it was humane as the bee did not suffer unduly. 

    • I once shot a rat in a hut with an 8x57mm Mauser. he racket from gnawing and scratching and scuttling really got on my tits.
