Hunter's Bullet Grazes 2 Kids at Michigan Day Care

BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.  —  Authorities in Wisconsin say a hunter's stray bullet has grazed two young boys at a day care near Cheboygan.

The Cheboygan County sheriff's department says a 43-year-old woman fired her rifle at a deer on Thursday but the bullet penetrated a wall and grazed the boys — ages 3 and 5 — inside Angie's Country Kids Day Care in Benton Township.

The Petoskey-News Review reports they were released from a hospital after treatment.

Authorities say the woman was hunting about 400 yards away, and may not have realized there was a day care in the area.

The county prosecutor's office is expected to review the case.

*sigh* Why don't people get to know the area they are hunting in? I know it's mentioned ad nauseum in the hunter safety classes up here.

Glad none of the kids were seriously hurt.

Wonder if she was an out-of-stater?

In before the women haters make a big deal out of the fact the hunter had ovaries.

Edit: Guess not.

And this is why you can only hunt with shotguns in some places. Retards that can't be trusted with real weapons get them taken away from everyone.

I can't find Angie's Country Kids Day Care in the phone book.  A lot of people are reporting this story, but is there any truth to it?

I looked this story up and can not find any day care with this name. I smell B.S. Back drop is 101 and this is a good reminder to all hunting and target shooters.
