Teen Killed When Camper Thought He Was BearWinnipeg News, Bear Hunting Magazine
Canadian police have released very little information so far about the incident that took place this past Sunday.
Apparently, a 22 year-old man shot and killed a fellow camper because he mistook them for a bear outside his tent in the middle of the night. The 22 year-old was camping along with the teen and two others near the Bloodvein River north of Winnipeg. The 22 year-old woke around four in the morning to the sound of what he thought was a bear outside his tent. He fired a shot that hit the 17 year-old, killing him.
