Fla. man on rabbit hunting trip accidentally shot
(Published February 21, 2009)

BELLE GLADE, Fla. - Authorities in Palm Beach County say a man is recovering after his hunting partner accidentally shot him.

The sheriff's office says the pair were hunting rabbits east of Belle Glades when the man was struck in the torso Friday afternoon. It's unclear whether the hunter's .22-caliber rifle mistakenly went off or if the injured man got in the way of a shot.

Sgt. Pete Palenzuela says the man's wounds are not believed to be life threatening and he's being treated at Delray Medical Center.

Authorities did not release the men's names.
