NY: Hunter shot after being mistaken for a deer

November 24, 2009

MIDDLEFIELD, N.Y. - A Sharon Springs hunter is in the hospital after a hunting accident Tuesday morning.

Walter O. Rouse, Jr., 37, Sharon Springs, was hunting in a field off Roscoe Jones Road in Middlefield with a hunting party, including Lawrence C. Delaney, 68, Cooperstown. Delaney was in a "hunting blind" and accidentally shot Roscoe, mistaking him for a deer.

The shot was from about 300 feet away and hit Roscoe in the upper left arm and traveled to his abdomen.

Both the Otsego County Sheriffs and the New York State Department of Environmental Police.

Roscoe was rushed to MIB Hospital in Cooperstown for emergency surgery.

No tickets have been issued yet. The investigation is on going.
