2 injured in hunting accident

FERDINAND, Ind. (AP) — State conservation officers are investigating after two hunters were shot and injured in southern Indiana.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources says the hunting accident occurred at about 9:15 a.m. Sunday southwest of Ferdinand in Dubois County.

The department says a 55-year-old Huntingburg man who was also in the hunting party fired three shots at a rabbit after it ran in between a 34-year-old hunter from Ferdinand and a 26-year-old hunter from Jasper. Both of them were hit with pellets from the man’s shotgun and suffered injuries that aren’t considered to be life-threatening.

The department says the man’s view was obstructed by thick brush and an incline.
