Lane County Circuit Judge Doug Mitchell also banned Trevor Kory Foster, 20, from hunting during two years of probation. He was convicted of misdemeanor assault and negligently wounding another.

The victim, 21-year-old Nicholas Lee Peterson, said he hopes the case encourages hunters to be more careful. He still cannot straighten his left arm, after being shot in the elbow and ribs with a .270-caliber rifle. Peterson said he feels lucky the high-powered rifle shot didn't kill him.

Foster fired the shot around dark on the final day of deer season as Peterson was in a wooded area between McBeth and Blanton Heights roads. Peterson was rattling deer antlers antlers

The exhibit was intended to draw visitors back to the aquarium after the departure of Keiko, the orca, to Iceland. During Keiko's 32 months at the aquarium, 2.3 million people visited. Attendance now averages about 500,000 a year.

The aquarium alleges that auditors for Talbot, Korvola & Warwick LLP LLP - Lower Layer Protocol  failed to confirm that construction expenses on the Passages of the Deep exhibit ended up costing $11 million, far more than the original estimate of $6.9 million.
