Larry Godwin must really hate raccoons.
Saturday morning in Redfield, IA Godwin went out and found a raccoon in his live trap. While intending to kill the raccoon in the cage, when he fired his .22 caliber handgun the shot ricocheted off the cage and struck him in the upper thigh.
This caused Godwin to drop the gun, where it fired again as it hit the ground, shooting another bullet into almost the same spot as the first injury.
He was taken to a local hospital where his injuries were deemed non-life threatening, but certainly a pride killer.
