Fox ’shoots hunter’ in BelarusJanuary 14th, 2011 - 9:36 pm ICT by Aishwarya Bhatt
Minsk, Jan 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A hunter in Belarus turned into the hunted when a struggle with a fox resulted in a gunshot wound to his leg.
The hunter who was not identified in the report first shot the animal. When the animal charged on him, things took a dramatic turn when the gun that he was wielding went off and somehow hit him in the leg.
It is believed that the fox will not be able to survive the shot but the hunter did survive and is receiving treatment at a local hospital.
Officials report that the incident happened at the Grodno region which is close to the Polish border. The place is noted for high population of elk, wild boar and wolves so hunters are known to go there often.
When narrating the incident, the man who is still in the hospital claimed that he shot the animal once but just as he was getting ready to shoot again, the animal attacked him. In the battle that ensued, the animal somehow managed to get its paws on the trigger and shot the man in the leg.
Afterwards, it jumped off and fled from the scene.
