[Property owner Katharine] Armstrong said she was watching from a car while Cheney, Whittington and another hunter got out of the vehicle to shot at a covey of quail late afternoon on Saturday. Whittington shot a bird and went to look for it in the tall grass, while Cheney and the third hunter walked to another spot and found a second covey.
Whittington "came up from behind the vice president and the other hunter and didn't signal them or indicate to them or announce himself," Armstrong told the Associated Press in an interview.
"The vice president didn't see him," she continued. "The covey flushed and the vice president picked out a bird and was following it and shot. And by god, Harry was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty good. This is something that happens from time to time. You now, I've been peppered pretty well myself," said Armstrong.
Cheney Accidentally Shoots Fellow Hunter
The article does a good job of explaining the incident. Most of those who are shooting off at the mouth, so to speak, obviously have not read the article and have little knowledge of firearms or hunting.
I wonder what the response would have been if Gore, Dean or Kerry had of shot somebody.
