Clinton Haas, 34, was killed Thursday evening while hunting in the Bridgewater Development near Jupiter with friend Ernie Small Jr. The 36-year-old Small, of West Palm Beach, likely mistook Haas for a boar and shot at him, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials said. The shooting was ruled accidental but the investigation remains open.
“At this point in our investigation, this appears to be a terrible hunting accident,” said Capt. John Suggs, law enforcement supervisor for the FWC, in a statement. “As with all hunting incidents, we will conduct a thorough investigation to find out how and why this hunting trip ended so  tragically.”
While the pigs can be hunted for sport and food, the two men were hunting them for eradication purposes.
