According to KOCO news, Cathy Kouba of El Reno Oklahoma was rudely awakened in her home by her home security system alarming and the back door being kicked in.
“I have a daughter that’s handicapped and she was asleep on the bottom floor,” Kouba said. “And so for the fear of her being hurt, motherly instincts kick in and, you know, I worked hard for what I’ve got. And you’re not going to come and take it away from me.”
Kouba grabbed the shotgun that was given to her as a mother’s day present and ran out the front door to confront the would be attacker.
“[I cocked the gun], saw that the door had broke down, then I saw him hitting over the fence and head to the creek,” Kouba said.
“[The police] didn’t get him but, you know, I’m sure he’s going to end up in the hospital somewhere. I mean, he’s got buckshot in his butt, I’m sure he’s going to,” she said.
