(Newser) – A wily fox turned the tables on a pursuing hunter and shot the man as the two battled in the woods. The Belarusian hunter was about to finish off the fox, wounded by one shot, with the butt of his rifle. But as he raised his gun, the animal leaped at him. Its paw somehow discharged the rifle and a bullet hit the hunter in the leg. "The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw," said an official. The fox escaped. The hunter is recovering in a local hospital, reports the Telegraph.
