There's a saying that goes something like, "Don't get mad, get even!" Well, it seems that in Mower County, Minn., they don't just try to get even -- they get out their gun and then shoot.
According to the Star Tribune, county authorities are looking for someone who has disrupted wireless reception from local service provider Midwest Wireless by shooting at a transmission tower near Elkton in mid December. The damage has been caused by a weapon larger than a .22-calibre rifle, apparently.
And this isn't the first time either. Oh no. In late November, a similar incident happened at a transmission tower near Lansing. The damage in each case is estimated at $10,000.
But it seems, from checking out Midwest's Website, that there's no shortage of strange goings on 'round them parts. Or so it seems to us city folk, anyhoo. You must read this press release for yourselves, but we were certainly attracted initially by the headline: Woman Donating Kidney to Customer: Now That’s Customer Service!.
