Cheney draws a bead on a Social Security recipient

According to the Associated Press:

Cheney...shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas...Harry Whittington, 78, was "alert and doing fine" after Cheney sprayed him with shotgun pellets [buckshot].

According to a 2003 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report on a Cheney Pennsylvania hunting trip:

[In] a day's shooting at the Rolling Rock Club in Ligonier Township...Cheney shot more than 70 ringneck pheasants and an unknown number of mallard ducks. The birds were plucked and vacuum-packed in time for Cheney's afternoon flight to Washington, D.C.

The AP doesn't say if Whittington was "plucked and vacuum-packed" prior to arriving at the hospital.
Two years ago this past January, as detailed here, the Bush dynasty made news with other tales of quail and duck.
