Aiming for Raccoon, Man Shoots Self

CORRECTIONVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities say a 45-year-old northwest Iowa man who was trying to shoot a caged raccoon accidentally shot himself.
   The accident occurred a little before 10 a.m. Sunday at Copeland Park in Correctionville.
   Woodbury County Sheriff's Maj. Greg Stallman says Tim McCormick had set out traps at his home in Correctionville and caught a raccoon. Stallman says McCormick took the caged raccoon to the park to shoot it, but instead accidentally fired his .38 caliber revolver into his left leg.
   He was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City. The uninjured raccoon was released back into the woods.
   The shooting is being investigated.
