Bullet bounces off armadillo, hits shooter in head

A man in Texas tried to shoot an armadillo - only for the bullet to ricochet off its shell and hit him in the head.

Cass County Sheriff's officials told ABC's KTRE that they were investigating the shooting.
“His wife was in the house. He went outside and took his .38 revolver and shot three times at the armadillo,” Sheriff Larry Rowe said according to the UK's Independent.

It turns out that this armadillo are pretty good at dealing with this sort of nonsense - as it managed to deflect the bullet back to the gunman and hit him in the jaw.

The gunman was taken to a hospital in Texarkana, where his jaw had to be wired shut.
The fate of the armadillo meanwhile is unclear.

“We didn't find the armadillo,” the Sherrif Rowe said.

This isn't the first time a silly American brought a gun to an Armadillo fight, as TomoNews US on YouTube elaborates.
