A man was trying to kill an armadillo in his yard and the bullet ricocheted off its hard shell into his mother-in-law.

On Sunday night in Lee Co., GA, a man named Larry McElroy was just hanging out in his yard when he saw a rascally armadillo. He took out his 9mm and shot it dead. The armadillo had his revenge: the bullet that killed him ricocheted off his shell, hit a fence, went through the door of McElroy's mother-in-law's mobile home, through the armchair where she was sitting and into her back.

Thankfully, 74-year-old Carol Johnson is fine and recovering speedily from her injury.
