Man Fearing Intruder Stumbles And Shoots Pet Cat

by | 30th, September 2010

DARYL Brownell is sure to be a Facebook legend on account of his having killed his family cat with a bullet.

We go back to the Brownell home. It is 6:15 a.m. on Sunday September 26, 2010, on McCullough Crescent, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

Brownell hears a noise. Worried it might be an intruder he picks up his gun. As he makes his rounds he stumbles. This causes him to fire the gun. The bullet rebounds off a wall and strikes the family cat.

Well, so he says.

The report then goes on to say something about the standard of house building in that place:

The bullet continued through an exterior wall of the house before hitting a neighbouring home. Investigators said the bullet missed the man’s wife and children, residents living in a basement suite, as well as people in the neighbouring house.

Do people live in cardboard houses in Canada?

Brownell, 31, has been charged with careless use of a firearm, careless storage of a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Let the Facebook protest begin…
