An Ohio farmer shot and killed a 22-year-old woman (who was out target shooting, believe it or not) because he mistook her for a groundhog:
Stark County Sheriff George Maier says Natasha Stover was shooting targets Monday with a BB gun when she laid down in the grass. Farmer Ralph Adams Jr., 79, thought she was a groundhog and fired a rifle about 165 feet away, hitting Stover in the head.
And she loved animals. And a 79-year-old man shot her because he thought she was one.
So much irony here.
I just have no words.
