SWEDEN, N.Y. — A fundraising page has been set up for the man seriously injured in a hunting accident in the Town of Sweden earlier this week.

Monroe County Sheriff’s investigators say Brett Blackburn was hunting coyotes with his son in a field off South Lake Road in Sweden when he accidentally shot Robert Williams.

Blackburn told investigators it was dark and he mistook Williams for an animal, firing his rifle once and hitting the Byron man in the abdomen.

Williams remains in guarded condition at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The GoFundMe page, started by Williams’ sister, says most people can recognize him by his “big heart, infectious laugh and relaxed demeanor.”

She says she wants to help her brother, who has a wife and 2-month-old baby, with the now-mounting hospital expenses.

Brett Blackburn was arrested and arraigned on second-degree assault charges for the shooting. He has since posted bail.

    • Yes, there are a lot of linguistic “nuances” when it comes to animals. A slaughtered pig is ham, and a slaughtered cow is steak, and a coyote killer is a sportsman.
      .

      • Exactly! The sport they have in mind is caveman sport of killing. Except the cavemen did it to survive and our modern day cavemen, pathetically represented by the narcissist josh bowman. The parasite doesn’t have a single cell in his body that is not artificially enhanced with modern technology and medicine and then he boasts that he has a right to be a cold blooded killer because of his cave man rights!
        The movie “The Road” shows that when every source of food is destroyed and gone humans will start feeding on each other. If there is an end like this visiting humanity, I hope to live long enough through the chaos and the rise of cavemen to power to see the useless narcissist josh bowman becomes a meal for other gruffer cavemen. I hope he pisses the cavemen off so much that they eat him after tenderizing his ugly body by beating him to pulp.

      • Sorry I didn’t my sentence I was so upset, here is the whole sentence
        Except the cavemen did it to survive and our modern day cavemen, pathetically represented by the narcissist josh bowman, they do it for the sadistic joy of killing.

  1. My list of “people/pets killed/injured by coyote hunters” is growing. Two deaths linked to coyotes (one is questionable) since 1981 yet there are at least 4 from coyote hunters within the past 3 years. I’ll definitely take my chances with coyotes – minimal risk.
