Police: Costumed Pa. girl mistaken for skunk, shot



FREEDOM, Pa. (AP) -- Police say a costumed 9-year-old girl was accidentally shot outside a western Pennsylvania home during a Halloween party by a relative who thought she was a skunk.
New Sewickley Township police say the girl was over a hillside and wearing a black costume and a black hat with a white tassel. Chief Ronald Leindecker told the Beaver County Times that a male relative mistook her for a skunk and fired a shotgun, hitting her in the shoulder, arm, back and neck Saturday night.
Leindecker told the newspaper that the girl was alert and talking when she was flown to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, about 30 miles away. Her condition was unavailable.
Leindecker says the man hadn't been drinking and he doesn't know whether charges will be filed. New Sewickley police said Sunday that decision will be made in a few days.

Western Pennsylvania never disappoints (except in the genetics department).

How the FUCK can you see something over on a hillside, not even be sure what it is, shoot it, your defense be,"I didn't know what it was when I shot it"? Then , have the chief of police tell the local paper,"Well he "sez" he didn't know it was a nine year old girl when he filled her full of buckshot, so I'm not sure if we'll press charges".

I call shenanigans.

I doubt I could shoot an actual skunk here and not get brought up on charges.

Again, western Pennsylvania.
Spent some of my time as a child in Western Pa. This does not surprise me. I went to a church as a kid with my grandfather's cleaning lady where they drank poison and got bit by rattlers and cottonmouths.

Nah, that's Lancaster. Between Philly and Harrisburg over to the east.
There used to be a Mennonite and an Amish community out there. Anyone else notiice that Beaver, Beaver Falls , and Economy are nearby communities? This is the northern tip of Appalachian peoples too...
