A Russian, Sergei Terekhov, has been shot dead by his dog in a freak accident that occurred during a hunting expedition.

This happened while the deceased was on a trip around the Volga river in company of his brother who rushed him to a hospital. 

Unfortunately, he gave up the ghost on the trip.

The tragic event came about when Terekhov attempted to let out two Estonian hounds from a vehicle.

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.
