Cathy Kouba’s home security system alarm jolted her awake Thursday night. She said she realized someone was trying to kick in her back door.
“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 said she grabbed the gun her son gave her for Mother’s Day and ran out the front door to confront the intruder out back.
“[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.
Kouba said she fired and thinks she hit him in his backside. Adding insult to injury, the intruder got tangled in her electric fence before escaping
I really do not understand what is going on with women theses days. By defending herself and her daughter, the only thing she did was…. save their lives!
I am glad that Ms. Kouba decided to forego the high moral ground of being a victim and made a criminal reassess his victim selection process. And to her son, God Bless you for giving the gift of life by Mossberg.
