Colorado Will Not Tolerate People Menacing Squirrels with Unloaded Pellet Guns
A squirrel gets an empty pellet gun pointed at it and a woman gets charged as a result. The incident happened in Longmont, Colorado this past Friday, October 13th, 2017. Apparently a woman had enough of a squirrel seeming to menace her outside a local coffee shop, so she pulled out her pellet gun (that had no ammo in it) and pointed it at the squirrel.
The question here is, what made the woman think a squirrel would be afraid of a pellet gun?
A visit from a squirrel outside of a coffee shop in Longmont, Colorado, Friday ended with an arrest of a woman after she tried to shoot it with a pellet gun.
According to witnesses, Kylie Morrison, 31, who police said appeared to be “high on something,” was talking to herself when she came to Cafe Luna. Morrison first walked into the business and sat down, then walked outside.
Once outside, Morrison reportedly became agitated as a squirrel approached her, and began throwing things at the animal. A witness then tried to get the squirrel away from Morrison, but Morrison grew increasingly agitated and finally pulled the pellet gun from her bag, leaving the witness frozen with fear. The witness said Morrison pulled the trigger three or four times, but authorities later confirmed the pellet gun wasn’t loaded.
Eventually, Morrison put the pellet gun away and police showed up soon thereafter. She was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct.
