    Only answering to the threat of the skunk. Not the killing of the girl or his negligence. There have been epidemics of rabies from time to time. It can be serious when your area is so bad that it is declared an epidemic.

    I still can't believe how many people just violate the basic shooting rules. The relative deserves to have the entire book tossed at them.

    "Girl, 9, in black and white costume shot in shoulder as relative mistakes her for skunk"
    Only if she were ~15in long with ~4in legs.

    Doesn't pass the "sniff" test, methinks.

    First it was snakes, then the porcupines, now the skunks. They're getting organized I tell you!

    IF, if he was in Mi. and IF, if it wasn't a nine year old girl, he would have been good, as you may take them anytime.

    They get to be a nuisance around here when the population gets up.

    Don't want the dog of kids spooking one that ventures too close to the house, or if we have the BBQ going after dark, or if we have a bon fire going and someone steps away to go to the house or elsewhere.

    Sad the dummy can't tell the difference between a real skunk 10 inches off the ground, and a little girl 4 feet off the ground dressed as one.
    Oh well, I guess she should have dressed as the Fairy Godmother this year.
    Glad she will recover. Could have been a lot worse as he fired a shotty.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    When I killed the porcupine the backdrop was the ridge at an angle behind the critter. Unless I hit a rock that caused something unexpected to happen, the only life in danger was the quilled beast.

    I knew my target, and what was beyond it. I follow the the rules of safety.

    Yup. Pretty simple guideline, actually.

    I'm wondering whether the shooter's beginning to question the basic utility of the four essential gun safety guidelines, now. Can't imagine that nobody has mentioned it to him, by now.

    One question remains in my mind, though: if he did that to a skunk, I shudder to think what he did to the wicked witch or the E.T.

    We're getting a pretty high skunk population here too. Had a friend of mine awhile back find two of them in her garage. They can be a real pain in the butt sometimes.

    Now on to the idiot's lack of firearm safety. What made shooting a super-sized skunk, in the dark, during a party sound like a good idea? I say find something to charge him with.

    Wouldn't a skunk be considered a varmit species?

    I don't know why you would want to shoot one. Only thing stinkier than a skunk is a dead skunk.
