Authorities say the squirrel hunter accidentally shot to death near Wausau last weekend was mistaken by another hunter for a squirrel. The Marathon County sheriff’s department identified the victim as 29-year-old Xou Chang of Wausau. Sheriff Scott Parks says that Chang was shot by his friend, a 32-year-old man from Wausau. The sheriff says Chang had two dead squirrels next to him on a stump, and his friend thought he saw movement and fired. Chang was in a hunting party of three and was struck in the head from about 50 yards away last Sunday. The shooting happened on private land. Autopsy results are pending.
