ANCHORAGE, Alaska—An Unalakleet woman was shot through both legs by her sister in a Friday hunting accident, according to Alaska State Troopers.
27-year-old Janine Iknokinok, was at the local clinic with serious injuries to her legs.
Iknokinok had been riding a four-wheeler on a road into Unalakleet after a moose hunting trip with her sister, 18-year-old Dinah Toolie, when their vehicle ran out of gas.
“When the ladies decided to walk the rest of the way, Toolie picked up the rifle and accidently pulled the trigger,” troopers wrote. “The round went through the backs of both of Iknokinok’s legs.”
Neither alcohol nor drugs were involved in the incident according to troopers.
