One of the animals however hopped on him excitedly leading to an unintentional discharge of a bullet which struck the victim in the abdomen according to the Telegraph UK News.

An investigator Alexander Galanin described the incident as an accident.

He also described the deceased as a sober man who was experienced in the art of hunting, a popular leisure activity in Russia.

“A pretty experienced hunter died,”

“He was sober and had a gun licence. Everything was in order. It was an accident,” says Galanin.
