Hunter gets 3.5 years in prison for accidentally killing man

A 39-year-old hunter who accidentally shot dead a man sleeping rough in a field has been sentenced to 3.5 years in prison and order to pay 6 million crowns in compensation to the man’s family. The hunter claims he thought was shooting at stag in the early hours of dawn. The Czech Hunters Association has appealed for greater discipline among its members, saying it is unacceptable to fire at a moving object in the foliage which the hunter cannot properly see.
