Utah County man shot while hunting pheasants in Paradise

A Utah County man was treated in a Brigham City hospital Thursday for gunshot wounds he sustained while hunting pheasants near Paradise.

Cache County Sheriff Lt. Chad Jensen said 33-year-old Steve Thurgood of Lehi told deputies he got into crossfire when a bird jumped out of the brush and other hunters began firing at the animal, shooting the man in the legs.

Jensen said he was transported by private vehicle to the Brigham City Community Hospital with non-life threatening injuries and evaluated. He had several shotgun pellets in his legs and was released from the hospital a few hours after he was admitted.

No other injuries were reported.
