Hunting Accident Results in Hefty Fine

A Timmins man has been fined three thousand dollars following a bizarre hunting incident.

Michel Quirion was pulled over by conservation officers east of Fort Frances last November after they noticed some damage to his passenger side door.

Quiron says he accidentally fired a shot inside his truck while deer hunting near Sioux Narrows.

He told conservation officers that he loaded the gun inside his truck because he didn't want to spook a deer he had seen on the road.

But he slipped while getting out of the truck and accidentally discharged the rifle.

The shot put a hole through the door, shattered the window and deployed the airbags.
