Oregon fellow was alarmed to find a squirrel running up his leg. (Story does not say if the squirrel was inside, or outside, of his pants.) So of course he grabbed his gun and shot at it. And not a hand gun but a rifle. He missed. Now to be completely guffaw worthy and guaranteed to make all men cringe reflexively the man should have shot himself in his most favorite of parts. Alas, for our story and for him, he did not. He shot his foot.
The squirrel survived and the foot was treated and released.
The investigating officer is still laughing.
