Drunk man aims at boar, kills friend instead in central Russia

PENZA, August 25 (RIA Novosti) - A man was shot dead by his drunk friend as they were hunting in the central Russian Penza Region, about 600 km (370 miles) southeast of Moscow, the head of the local hunting department said on Monday.

Nikolai Sodomov said the two friends had gone boar hunting after an evening's drinking, even though the boar hunting season has already ended in the region.

As the two men looked for boars in darkness, one of them heard a noise in the bushes and opened fire. The 'boar' was his friend, who later died on his way to hospital.

An investigation is underway.
