Fortunately, my bad luck is nothing in comparison to this:
VILAS COUNTY, WI - Vilas County Deputy Sheriff Ty Peterson is a 12-year veteran with the department and the Vilas County Sheriff's Department says he allegedly shot a 20-year-old female relative Monday night.
Vilas County Sheriff Frank Tomlanovich says he's never encountered an incident like this during his law enforcement career.
Tomlanovich says Peterson was doing chores around the house when he thought he was being attacked by a cougar, one which Peterson had seen earlier in the day.
Tomlanovich says it looks like a practical joke that went terribly wrong.

"He'll be either eligible to return to work or should some other action be necessary, we'll take those steps," Tomlanovich says.
Tomlanovich says Deputy Peterson is the department's K-9 officer and has a clean record with the department.
Glad everyone was ok after this incident.
Hopefully, the victim will reserve her talent in performing wildlife impressions for the next Western Washington Predator Hunter Association's seminar on "Cougar Calling" or something.
In any event, she may have inadvertently discovered a new career path.
Have a good weekend everyone.
