December 3, 2009
Worker hurt in deer-hunting accident
A gas-well worker suffered a minor leg injury in a shooting involving a
deer hunter Wednesday morning in Hampton, a state Game Commission officer
The worker was at a gas-well site off West Bardonner Road when a hunter
fired at a deer at 8:45 a.m., said Tom Fazi, a wildlife conservation
officer. A bullet fragment or some debris hit the worker's truck before
striking the worker in the leg, raising a welt, Fazi said.
State police said someone shot and killed three male deer that were being
raised on private property in Westmoreland County.
Bruce Aaron, 55, told troopers the shooting occurred sometime between
8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., when someone shot two deer, which were bedded down,
and another which was standing in a fenced-in area posted with "No Hunting"
signs in South Huntingdon.
They were the only two hunting incidents reported yesterday in
