Funny story. We gave armadillos all over and if you ignore them, they run away.

The big picture lesson is you don't need to shoot living beings.

While I don't totally agree on not shooting living things, I do agree there is no reason to shoot an Armadillo.

Don't kiss them either. Some of them carry leprosy.

It seems to me that a 9mm would punch thru. But I guess that's the reason for the problem. Texas is known for Armadillos, but even as a hunter I've never even considered shooting one. No reason to.

It injured his MIL... Was it really an accident? 😲

Apparently, bullets can ricochet when they hit armadillos. The impact kills the animal (no real surprise there), but the threat is real. 😱
