Woman uninjured when hunter's bullet hits house
DOUGLAS, N.D. - A north-central North Dakota woman is counting her
blessings after a hunter's bullet ripped through a window of her house.
Frieda Kassner of rural Douglas told the Minot Daily News she was sitting
in her living room about 10:30 a.m. Saturday when she heard a sound like an
explosion. She was hit by glass but uninjured.
Kassner said she and her husband, Wayne, allow hunting on their land but
had not received any requests for permission from hunters recently. Based on
the size of the bullet, the couple believes a deer hunter fired the shot.
The Ward County Sheriff's Office and a game warden investigated.
Frieda Kassner said she's grateful to be alive, and she planned to say
her prayers twice on Saturday night.
Douglas is 35 miles southwest of Minot.
