34-year-old Clinton Haas, of Loxahatchee, Florida, was out hunting boar with his friend, 36-year-old Ernie Small. The two were helping to eradicate boar from a gated community.
"Boars destroy property like there is no tomorrow," said a local police officer. "They eat roots, insects, they dig up the ground."
At some point, Small mistook Haas for a boar and,tragically, shot and killed him.
Haas leaves behind a wife, son and twin daughters. He owned a one-man repair business.
His wife told reporters that Haas' body was taken to the University of Miami where his cornea, tissues and bone marrow will be donated.
