[MDIFW NEWS – Wayne Maine, 10-8-2018]

William E. Penley of Scarborough, Maine was turkey hunting with his grandson at a family members residence on the Richmond Mills Road in Wayne Maine this morning. Penley was sitting in an outcropping of trees near the wood line watching a flock of wild turkeys in the yard. Penley shot his 12 gauge shotgun at a single wild turkey in the direction of the Richmond Mills Road. Unknowingly to Penley, a couple were walking their dogs and watching the same flock of wild turkeys from the Richmond Mills Road. When Penley shot, a single pellet from the round struck Richard Hannibal of Fayette in the chest as he stood on the roadway. Medical personnel arrived but Hannibal refused treatment.

This incident is still being investigated by Maine Game Wardens.
