Bishop Shoots a Man during Hunt

Bjelovar-Križevci Bishop Vjekoslav Huzjak, 58, Croatia, went hunting with others on January 11 when he shot a member of his hunting party.

Huzjak is known for being a passionate hunter. The hunt took place in the area of Lipovljani.

At one point, Huzjak fired a shot from his hunting cabin trying to hit a boar, but instead hit the thigh of a hunting companion, 64, who was some 90 meters away. The injury is not life-threatening.

Police have filed criminal charges against the bishop, reports Večernji List on January 15.

In his defense, the bishop said that the wounded man was wearing a boar outfit in order to lure wild boar from their hideouts in the forest. Anybody could have mistaken the man for a wild boar, the bishop said.

"criminal charges" ... but the abusers can just receive a little slap on the hand for mistreating, destroying and killing a young life ...

Either he is a good shot or a really bad one.... being a hunter of boar myself, I am going with a Good shot.
