dressed in animal skin shot dead during hunt
man dressed in animal hide was mistakenly shot dead while out hunting wild
boar for a Christmas dinner.
Police said members of a shooting party made up of families opened fire
when Christos Constantinou, 49, moved through the undergrowth. They are
thought to have been confused by the fact the victim was disguised in dark
goat skins, which are used to camouflage and to mislead their prey. The
groups had fanned out in pairs of two to track down an animal for the traditional
festive dinner when the accident happened. Police in the northern Greek
town of Nemea, Chalkidiki, said Mr Constantinou was pronounced dead upon
arrival at hospital. Two unidentified men, aged 25 and 28, were detained
and were being questioned.
