Hunter outfoxed by Prey – Fox grabs rifle before attempted clubbing

A fox seriously wounded shot its would be slayer by pulling the trigger on the hunter’s firearm as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, media said in Belarus.

Chasing down foxes is considered a popular sport in the rural districts of northwestern Belarus which borders Poland.

The unidentified hunter (BR’s Note Would you want your name to get out?), who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, according to 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.

  • Hunter’s Medical Fee – $500
  • Self Defence of Fox? PRICELESS!
