    I would have to agree that taking a life over wood is a bit drastic. That being said, if I ever caught anyone on my property trying to steal anything, I would hurt them. My wife and small children are often home alone. I live off the road surrounded by woods, my house is barley visible in the summer. I worry about somebody coming down to steal something, my wife startles them and things go bad from there. You can't see certain parts of my property from other parts. My wife could be at the swing set with the kids and not even know that somebody is robbing the barn. That is my biggest concern.

    as I am presenting a report on urban myths and how they
    began.

    home fire this happened long abo possibly early 80's the backhoe involved is the same one I have posted here splitting wood it is a John Deere 1977 500c.
    I don't know if I can validate the story with a police record, but 3 years ago Mo heat and I exchanged some (e-mail) crazy life incident we experienced. I told him this story
    he can validate only to the point if it similar or I embelished it this time around

    You know at the time the rush of the moment took over my thinking I don't know why I did what I did I never factored in that could have had guns
    Because there was no break I believe the cops just arested them with the evidence of the stolen goods in the truck. I never filed a report or was required any further actions after the police took the intruders away. The local news was the police apprehended the breakin intruders and that i the evidence tied them into other brewk in in the surounding towns.
    If any herro status was needed it goes to my dog who put up enough noise and presented enough resistance that allowed me to do what I did and slowed down tthe possible intruders for a quick hit and run. It all happened in less than 30 minutes then normal life went on
