    Girl mistaken for a skunk, shot.

    "Girl, 9, in black and white costume shot in shoulder as relative mistakes her for skunk"

    Police say alcohol was not involved. Amazing.

    The good news, she is likely to be OK as best I can tell from the whole story.

    Your link did not get me to the story. Found this one.
    Costumed girl, 9, shot after being mistaken for skunk outside western Pa. party, police say - The Washington Post

    EDIT:
    Leindecker says the man hadn’t been drinking and he doesn’t know whether charges will be filed.
    Why should whether or not the person was drinking have anything to do with whether or not to charge him?

    In my world "stupid" deserves jail time. I'd say 10 years should about do it.

    Never shot an object that you can't clearly identify

    Truly terrible. I feel bad for the girl and the relative. But I definitely laughed at the thread title.

    I have no use for anybody that would ever pull a trigger on a target that they could not positively identify.
    And WHY would you shoot a skunk anyway just for the hell of it?
    I absolutely despise the Shoot Anything On Four Legs That Moves Just Because I Can mindset.
    Skunks historically don't bother anybody in Pennsylvania and especially if they are far enough away that you could mistake a doggone 9 year old girl for one.
    IDIOT.

    That's what I was wondering too....... skunks aren't near the size of a 9 yr old....

    Yup, negligent discharge and then let the F&G get him for poaching a non-game species.

    I've stretched my imagination and can't figure out a scenario that would cause him to shoot. You just can't make this stuff up, is a true statement.

    Well, I guess when you factor in the thousands of innocent human beings that have been viciously and wantonly attacked, maimed, and killed by giant carnivorous skunks in Pennsylvania in the past few decades - you can understand why he took the shot.
