According to Cass County Sheriff Larry Rowe a man in Texas tried three times to shoot an endangered armadillo with .38 revolver, but the bullet ricocheted and hit the jaw of trigger happy human. Although armadillo’s body was not found, so chances are strong that his armor which is made of bones saved him, and left the
badass story behind.
Armadillo are occasionally spotted in the southern states of the US, where they are considered a pest for digging up lawns or crops.
After the story went viral, people on social media are describing this as revenge for Cecil the Lion who was murder by American trophy hunter.
