    POSTED: 9:44 am PDT July 8, 2008
    POTTER VALLEY, Calif. -- A Mendocino County woman who was trying to kill mice in her trailer with a gun ended up shooting herself and another person.:bang: Sheriff's officials say the 43-year-old woman pulled out her .44-caliber Magnum revolver after she saw the mice scurrying across the floor of her trailer on Highway 20 in Potter Valley. But she accidentally dropped the gun, which went off as it struck the floor. The bullet went through the woman's kneecap, bounced off the keys sitting on the belt loop of a 42-year-old man in the trailer and grazed the man's groin before ending up in his coin pocket. Authorities did not release the shooting victims' names. The mice escaped the shooting unharmed.http://www.ktvu.com/news/16820621/detail.html

    "The mice escaped the shooting unharmed." ROFL That poor guy's groin. Ouch. What happened to just chasing mice around with a butcher knife?

    What an idiot but sadly, I have seen people in Mexico shoot rats with machine guns.
    Yeah, it was the Mexican police shooting them in the street. A busy street.
