When I first read this headline, I did a double take. But it’s true:
“Neng Xiong was wandering around the Bayport Wildlife Management Area off Stagecoach Trail with his 20-gauge Beretta shotgun one afternoon last month when he saw some “small gray stuff” moving along the ground in the woods.
It looked like a squirrel, he told police. So he shot it.
But that “squirrel,” prosecutors say, was Woodbury bowhunter Jared Nestrud. He’d been on the ground, under some branches wearing camouflage.”
Thankfully, Nestrud is OK. Read more of the details at TwinCities.com.
