Sometimes the fox he win
A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled while the hunter tried to finish the animal off
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.
It’s good to se the fox get a score draw, Cases of hunters being wounded or killed by their prey are not everyday but uncommon, especially if one is a regular reader of the Fortean Times!
Anyway it gives me a perverse pleasure to see hunters get their comeuppance
