    Beer, 2 Dipshits Plus 2 Guns=2 Dead Goats, 1 Dead Cow Mistaken For Coyote

    Shooter says he mistook cow for coyote

    Thu Nov 22, 7:26 PM ET

    COLFAX TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A man says he shot and killed a neighbor's cow after mistaking it for a coyote.

    Authorities and the owner are skeptical.

    The undersheriff in northern Michigan's Benzie County says he doesn't see how anyone could confuse a 1,400-pound, pregnant cow with a coyote, which typically weighs 20 to 45 pounds.

    And anyway, shooting coyotes is illegal during deer-shooting season. Authorities asked the county prosecutor to bring charges.

    The 42-year-old man told authorities he was out to shoot coyotes near his home Saturday when he killed the cow, Undersheriff Rory Heckman said. Heckman said the man then tried to drag the cow home.

    "The part of his story he his holding to is he shot at a coyote. I don't know how he hit a several-thousand-pound cow mistaking it for a coyote," Heckman said.

    The cow, named Hannah, had wandered away from her farm.

    "My husband thought that he should go through some therapy looking at repeated pictures of cows and coyotes, because they look nothing alike," said owner DeAnn Mosher. "It didn't make any sense to me."

    Wis. man upset over beer shoots goats

    Wed Nov 21, 9:48 PM ET

    WAUPACA, Wis. - A man who was upset with his wife for not buying beer took vengeance by shooting the family's two pet goats, prosecutors say.


    Peter W. Mischler, 48, was charged this week in Circuit Court with mistreatment of animals, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct with a dangerous weapon.

    The complaint said Mischler came home Monday from hunting and became angry with his 22-year-old daughter for letting the goats out and making a mess. While she was talking on the phone to her mother, authorities said, he told her to tell his wife to bring home some beer, but his wife refused because she was already on her way home.

    He then threatened to shoot the goats, according to the complaint. After his wife arrived home, she and the daughter heard four gunshots.

    "He shot both of them. He killed Flash, and the officer had to kill Chloe," the daughter, Megan Mischler, said in a phone interview Wednesday. "I really don't understand why he shot them — they didn't deserve it."

    She said her father had been most angry about the mess the goats made, not the beer.

    The family is now grieving the loss of the two goats, Megan Mischler said.

    "We took those goats swimming, we took them to Dairy Queen to get ice cream, they were completely leash-trained," she said, her voice trembling. "They were more than goats to us, they were more like a dog. And they didn't deserve this."

    Peter Mischler was released on $1,000 bond. When The Associated Press called the home Wednesday evening, his wife said her husband was not available for comment.


    (This version CORRECTS that two goats were shot and that incident happened Monday).)

    1,400 pounds, that's a pretty damn big cow!

    This is all just one huge collective cry for help.
