Are there worse things a guy can do than mistaking his girlfriend for a pig? There probably are – sleeping with someone else your girl considers a pig comes to mind – but that’s gotta be near the top of the list, right? Especially when he has a gun in his hand and is stalking a wild hog. Steven Egan was hunting one while on a camping trip with his girlfriend, Lisa Simmons. We’ve never seen Lisa, but no matter how lovely and svelte she may actually be, we’re guessing Steve’s home life just got a lot more complicated. Not to mention expensive . . .
The two lovebirds were camping in Florida when Egan spotted a wild porker. He took a shot at it, then left Lisa in their tent with dreams of bacon and chops dancing in his head. From news.yahoo.com:
Unbeknown to Egan, Simmons had also left the tent to pick up loose oranges that had fallen from trees on the property. Instead of hitting his wild target, Egan struck his girlfriend in both legs with a .30-caliber bullet.
“He saw a hog and thought he shot it and went to look for it,” Maj. Steve Clair with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office told ABCNews.com. “He heard her and thought it was a hog and just shot.”
Even I, having never hunted, know you don’t shoot at something you haven’t positively ID’d. No matter how unsuccessful she may have been at Weight Watchers. Fortunately, Lisa will apparently make a full recovery. Given what she now has to hold over Steve’s head, his wallet likely won’t.
