Russian hunter shot dead by own dog

Sergei Terekhov died on a drive to the hospital following a gunshot to his abdomen.

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.

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.

A visit to Sergei Terekhov's Odnoklassniki social network portrays him as an ardent huntsman who enjoys hunting rabbits.

One of his pictures displayed him holding one of his prizes.
