Fox Shoots Hunter
A wounded fox shot its would-be killer in Belarus…by pulling the trigger on the hunter’s gun, as the pair scuffled, after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said Thursday.
The unnamed hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said, 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.
Fox hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwestern Belarus that borders Poland.
