Default Fox Shoots Hunter with Rifle!

From Fox Shoots Hunter with Rifle



"A sly fox in Belarus got the best of the hunter who was about to finish him off, by shooting the man with his own rifle.

Reuters reported that an unnamed hunter shot and wounded a fox in the farming region of Belarus. When he walked closer to the fox with the intention of killing it with the butt of his rifle, the animal began to wrestle with him.

As the two struggled, the fox managed to move its paw near the trigger of the gun and shoot the hunter in the leg.

A prosecutor from the Grodno region said, “The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw.”"

Pure stupidity! Striking an animal with his stock. And a loaded one at that!
WHAT was he thinking.

I always cheer for the animal in these situations. Are there even any recipes calling for fox?

I always thought hunting would be more sporting if animals carried guns.

fox

Last night, by the light of the moon, I watched a red fox hunting. I also saw a deer mouse scurrying around searching for food. I am amazed that in this packed subdivision, I still have so much wildlife.

The only reason anyone would need to hunt a fox is to keep them from eating their chickens. But, if they secured the chicken coop that would not be necessary.

Fox 1, hunter 0.
