Hunter Becomes Hunted: A Fox Shoots a Man

When a fox was shot by a hunter, it didn't die. Instead, when the hunter tried to finish the fox off with the butt of his gun, the animal pulled the trigger of the gun and shot the hunter right back.

The man (who remains anonymous) was hunting for foxes in Belarus (who aren't protected from hunting because they transmit rabies), close to the border of Poland. After being shot from a distance, according to the police, "the animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw". The fox managed to run off as friends jumped in to save the wounded man.


Obviously, a man's life is more valuable than the animal's but I can't help but think that this is some sort of twisted poetic justice. [Daily Mail via Neatorama]
