“Too Much Hunting”

Man injured in Goodhue County hunting accident

HAY CREEK — A St. Paul man was injured Sunday in a hunting accident at the Hay Creek Recreation Area in Goodhue County.

Thao Yang, 28, was injured from “a stray shotgun blast,” according to a press release issued Monday by the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office. The incident is believed to have happened at 1:50 p.m., though local authorities weren’t alerted to the situation until contacted by St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood at 5:19 p.m.

Yang was treated and released on Sunday, according to a hospital spokesperson.

It’s believed that Yang was hunting with another person when he was struck by pellets from a nearby hunter who was not part of their group.

“It’s one of those things of too much hunting in one place, I think,” said Kris Weiss, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman

  1. Or, it could be a white supremacist resenting people with foreign names.

    I’m amazed how authorities seemingly always state ‘accident’, even though the meme is about hunters identifying their target before they squeeze off their clean, killing shot.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we’re encouraged to fear for our lives because of bears, cougars, and wolves, yet hunters kill about 100 people per year, exceeding the total of a century of human killing by ravenous apex predators.
