Husband of Massachusetts Shooting Victim Questions Hunter

The husband of a Massachusetts woman shot by an off-duty state trooper hunting deer after dark is questioning the trooper's target identification.

The Boston Herald reports the trooper apologized to the woman's family. But the woman's husband also is a hunter and says hunters need to pay attention and know their targets.

Norton police say 66-year-old Cheryl Blair was walking her two dogs Saturday a quarter-mile into a wooded area when neighbor John Bergeron mistook her pets for a deer. Police say Bergeron called 911 to get help after the shooting.

Blair is in a hospital recovering from surgery for a fractured pelvis.

Authorities say the shooting was accidental. A state police spokesman says Bergeron was properly licensed and faces no criminal charges. The investigation continues.

Bergeron hasn't commented.
