Story By Associated Press

WAUSAU - A squirrel hunter shot to death near Wausau got mistaken for a squirrel by another hunter.

Marathon County deputies identify the victim as 29-year-old Xou Chang of Wausau.

Sheriff Scott Parks says Chang was shot by his friend, a 32-year-old man from Wausau.

The state Department of Natural Resources says Chang was shot in the head after another hunter saw movement and fired.

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 shot from about 50 yards away Sunday.

The shooting happened on private land.

Autopsy results are pending.
