    This one is funny.
    The intruder stole cash, car keys and other property from the house in Sydney on Sunday afternoon.
    The homeowner, a 68-year-old man, used a wooden bow to challenge the thief as he tried to steal a car.
    The robber fled the vehicle and jumped a fence but was shot from behind as he ran to a parked getaway car.

    Surely the homeowner can't be charged with attempted murder. Ah, but again that's in the land down under...

    I think I'd rather be shot by a pistol than a broad head. That is a NASTY wound.

    They confiscated his bow and all his arrows.

    "Wooden bows are not banned in New South Wales and do not require a licence or permit."

    That's about to change.

    However, if he truly shot the guy in the *ss as he was jumping a fence while running away, I don't hold much hope for the old man in their courts.


    EDIT:

    Nimble old man, though:

    The 68-year-old homeowner, however, stood on a fence, took aim and shot the intruder in the buttocks, who managed to get into a Mazda Tribute, and escape.
