KRONENWETTER, Wis. (WSAU) - Investigators say a man shot in the abdomen while hunting in Kronenwetter was mistaken for a squirrel.

Officials say the 20-year-old victim was taking part in the statewide squirrel hunt when another hunter saw movement in the woods, and shot him. That shooting happened on Sunday, a day after the squirrel season opened in the state.

The shooting remains under investigation. Neither the shooter or the victim has been identified.
