Hunter Vienchaleun Kettavong mistaken for squirrel and killed in Rush NY hunting accident

Here is an example of Hunter stupidity, which is why hunters need to know what it is that they are about to shoot! A wolf doesnt even resemble a coyote, just as a human doesnt resemble a squirrell

A 71-year-old man was killed last night by a friend’s son while squirrel hunting in Rush, Monroe County sheriff’s deputies said as they identified the men Wednesday morning.

Vienchaleun Kettavong was hunting with a friend and the friend’s son in a heavily wooded area in Rush about 5:30 p.m., when the son shot his rifle at what he believed to be a squirrel and instead struck his father’s friend, said Cpl. John Helfer of the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

The location of the incident was roughly 1,000 yards east of West Henrietta Road and a half mile north of Honeoye Falls 6 Road, and was difficult for emergency responders to access, Helfer said. Kettavong was hunting in the woods between Honeoye Falls 5 Points Road and the Brooks Gun Club with his friend KT Kounnavong, 58, and son P. Kounnavong, 32.

Kettavong was pronounced dead at the scene.
