Dick Cheney misses bird, hits fellow hunter

`U.S. Vice-President Dick Cheney has shot and wounded a 78-year-old fellow hunter during a Texas quail shoot.

Harry Whittington, a lawyer from Austin, the state capital, was described as “alert and doing fine” in hospital after being sprayed with shotgun pellets late Saturday afternoon at the Armstrong Ranch in south Texas.

Ranch owner Katharine Armstrong said Cheney turned to shoot a bird that had just been flushed and accidentally hit Whittington, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reported.’
