Police: Hunter killed by friend who mistook him for animal

WAUSAU, WI (WTAQ) - Authorities in central Wisconsin now say that a squirrel hunter was killed when a friend in his hunting party mistook him for another animal last weekend. 

The victim was identified Wednesday as 29-year-old Xou Chang of Wausau. He and two other Wausau men were hunting last Sunday morning on private land northeast of Athens in Marathon County.

Officials said Chang was shot in the head when a 32-year-old Wausau man saw movement from 50 yards away and fired. Chang had two dead squirrels next to him on a stump at the time. 

Marathon County sheriff's deputies and the state DNR are continuing to investigate the incident.
