They’re so easy to mix up, humans and coyotes, but if you have gun you never have to worry if you mistake one for the other.

Trenten Sutherland, 28, was hunting with friends on his property about 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 27, the sheriff’s office said. One of the men somehow thought Sutherland was a coyote and fired at him.

Sutherland died immediately, the sheriff’s office said. An investigation is ongoing.
