Dallas police are on the lookout for a man who could face assault charges for throwing a frozen armadillo at a 57-year-old woman near Dallas.

The woman, My Fox Dallas-Fort Worth reports, met the man in a parking lot to purchase the armadillo carcass, which she planned to eat.

During a fight over its price, he hit her with the animal in the leg and the chest, leaving bruises on her body.

When the riots erupted in the UK they had no guns so they flocked to the internet to purchase bats to protect themselves. We need not worry, I will sleep good tonight knowing I have a weapon in my freezer

If frozen armadillos are outlawed, only outlaws will have frozen armadillos.

We must have more and better frozen armadillo control laws.
A civilized society cannot permit the continuation of this type of brutal conduct.

At a minimum there should be a requirement for a background check and a three day waiting period to prevent these frozen cadavers from getting in the hands of potentially violent people - especially while they may be looking for a frozen armadillo while caught up in a moment of rage.

Serious consideration should also be given to creating “Frozen Armadillo Free Zones” with zero tolerance for any infraction.

Check the armadillo carcass for cocaine. I'll bet that's why they were haggling over price.

This is one of those stories where you just really don't know where to begin.

Armadillo: It tastes like chicken..

Actually, it's sposed to taste like very good pork, according to a Nat'l Geo article I read years & years ago.

Bad thing is that armadillos can transmit leprosy to humans.

I think she’s fibbing. She really wanted to put a Lone Star long neck in his tiny little armadillo hands and just leave him on the side of the road.

I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE, THAT RIGHT THERE IS FUNNY!

Seriously, armadillos carry the organism that causes leprosy. I hope it had been well bleached before any of this.

I think the police report was mis-read. The weapon in question was a “frozen, armored dildo.”

Eat?

Armadillos reportedly carry leprosy.

My solution: .22, then scoop into the front end loader and a quick trip to the back 50 -- to leave them for the buzzards, coyotes, hogs, ...whatever...

Self ping, because it's Friday night, I'm in Texas, I have beer, and I know someone that needs to be whooped with an armadillo.

I may have to go look for an armadillo tonight. After I clean out the freezer.

If he really wants an Armadillo, he could camp out in my yard and catch the ones that keep tearing up my lawn. I might even pay him for the ones he catches.
