Fox shoots man during hunting scuffle

Los Angeles Times January 14, 2011 | 11:13 am
An Eastern European hunter was outfoxed by his quarry when the fox he had wounded (not the one pictured here) ended up shooting him by pulling the trigger on the man's gun.

The unnamed Belarus hunter was trying to finish the animal off with the butt of his rifle after having wounded it from a distance, reports the Vancouver Sun. He approached the fox and a scuffle ensued, according to media reports citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.

"The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw," one prosecutor was quoted as saying.

The hunter was admitted to an area hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape.

I quoted the whole thing, but you'll have to check the link for the picture. I do hope the fox survived the initial wound and is doing well.

One can only hope this happens in England, and frequently.

What, that people take up shooting foxes? I thought it was considered practically lese majeste to kill them in any way but getting onto horses and running them down with hounds.
