Here's a story that may interest the 100,000 New Jerseyans who hold firearm and bow hunting licenses.

A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle, Reuters is reporting from Moscow.

The unidentified hunter, who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance, is in a hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, Russian media reported Thursday, citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.

"The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw," one prosecutor was quoted as saying.

Fox-hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwestern Belarus which borders Poland.
