WHITMORE LAKE, Mich. — A Whitmore Lake family is getting over their shock after a ram tried to crash Thanksgiving dinner.
Mike Richard says he shot the ram after it tried to head-butt its way into his home on Thanksgiving. Richard says the ram was grazing nearby before it chased him and his wife and tried to bust down the garage door.
He says the animal broke a glass storm door and damaged the front door before the family decided to shoot it. Richard says he needed to protect his mother-in-law and pregnant relative.
A neighbor later said the ram had escaped from his farm and may have been more aggressive because it's breeding season.
Richard says it was a Thanksgiving he and his family will never forget.
