KWTV meteorologist Lacey Swope says she’s fine after a shooting accident over the weekend left her with gash on her forehead.

“Wanna know what NOT to do? Don’t shoot your gun of 12 years and let the scope kiss your forehead!” Swope wrote on Facebook on Saturday. “Scopes don’t kiss, they bite! Dumb slip that landed me four stitches on the ol’ noggin. Good news: thanks to that shot we have one less feral hog on our land. Still have dozens more that have to go.”

Swope later updated her condition, saying her face is healing nicely.

“The stitches aren’t keeping me from being on-air,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “That part looks great! It’s the two swollen bruised eyes that are the problem right now. They are also getting better. Concealer covers up the bruise, but I can’t find anything to take all the swelling away. It will just take a little more time. Thank you all for your kind words! See you soon!”
