A 39-year-old Czech man was injured in a hunting accident in the area of Jeseník on Wednesday, when an as yet undetermined shooter hit him in the leg. The man had to be treated in hospital; the police are investigating. Similar incidents are not uncommon during hunting season: last month a 59-year-old was hit by shotgun pellets in the hand and leg, while in February a 60-year-old hunter died after being mistakenly shot in the chest. The police regularly monitor hunters to try to prevent similar incidents, checking the state of hunters’ firearms as well as checking for alcohol consumption.
