Idaho Reports web extra: Ruthie’s wrath

In October 1991, a mule called Ruthie kicked Gov. Cecil Andrus in the head during a hunting trip. Andrus’ hunting buddy, Dr. Richard Meiers, was also on the receiving end of the mule’s wrath.

In this Idaho Reports web extra, we hear Meiers’ side of the story, as well as the exchange between Andrus and then-Lt. Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter.
