It's getting more and more dangerous for children to be around adults with firearms.

The girl was hit in the shoulder, arm, back and neck in the shooting in Rochester, a rural area about 30 miles north west of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where firearms and hunting are common.

Ms Grant said someone had told her at around 8.30pm that there was a skunk nearby and she asked her son to shoot it, New Sewickley Township police chief Ronald Leindecker said, according to the Beaver County Times.


That area outside of Pittsburgh is very Tea-Bag savvy -- unsafe for skunk or child.
