Florida Man Mistakes Girlfriend for a Hog, Shoots Her

Life at home for one Florida man  got a lot more complicated when he accidentally shot his girlfriend in both legs thinking she was a hog.

Flagler County Sheriff’s deputies say 52-year-old Steven Egan was hog hunting Saturday night with   girlfriend Lisa Simmons  at a hunting camp off a rural county road in Flagler,  in the northern part of the state.

Around 7:30 p.m., officials said, Egan shot at a hog and then left Simmons behind in the tent to go look for it.  When he heard a noise in the woods he fired his gun again, thinking it was the animal.

Unbeknown to Egan, Simmons had also left the tent to pick up loose oranges that had fallen from trees on the property.  Instead of hitting his wild target, Egan struck his girlfriend in both legs with a .30-caliber bullet.
