Okay this has to be one of

Okay this has to be one of the strangest ones I have read. First of all on how the guy handled the situation and his unsafe gun handling practices and second on the womans choice of a place to go. It doesn't say if this was a campsite with a bunch of people or not but still a little wierd.

Woman shot...

It depends on what part of Canada they were in.  If the women there are anything like what I saw in interior Alaska, I can understand the confusion.

All I can say...

All I can say is "That was one incredibly stupid man"! But with that said, there seems to be something wrong with that picture. Was this a public campground? Did these campers know there were other campers nearby? How much noise can a woman make taking a pee? And how does that sound like a bear?

And then there are the obvious questions... Why was this guy carrying a handgun in a Canadian park? What would posses him to shoot in a public park? And, why would he shoot blindly in the dark? There are too many unanswered questions. But let me ask just one more. Why would the lady have to be the one to press charges? If he had killed her, would they have made her press charges?

There is more to this story than we know. Did the guy know this lady? Too many questions.

You'd be surprized at the stuff people misidentify.  I once saw a mule killed that had been mistaken for a cow elk.  I can somewhat see the confusion, except the guy was only 50 yards away when he shot it. Confused

Yup

Yup, that takes the term "sound shot" to an even more ignorant level, without a shadow of a doubt!! Whistling
