In January of 2015, a 52-year-old hunter from Virginia heard a rustling in the underbrush. After getting into position to fire, the man sat movement through the trees and fired at it. Unfortunately, the man actually shot one of his two hunting companions and nearly killed him. If the second man had actually died, would the law have allowed the careless shooter to be prosecuted? Or would the excuse "I didn't know it was a person" have been enough to protect him?
