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.

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.
