A Bulgarian man, 59, has been shot and injured during hunting in a string of similar incidents recently.
The news was reported Monday by the police in the central city of Stara Zagora.
The injured, T.D., has been taken to ER in Stara Zagora by the person, who shot him, A.K., 40.
The victim has serious facial injuries, but his life is not in danger.

A.K. has tested negative for alcohol blood content, but is being held by the police for 24 hours.
Hunting accidents have been happening quite often in Bulgaria recently.
On January 8, a 64-year-old Bulgarian man passed away, three days after he was accidentally shot during a hunt near the southwestern village of Studena. The hunter's colleagues shot him in the head and the back while aiming at a wild boar.
A 73-old man died at the end of Decemebr after he was shot, presumably accidentally, by a fellow hunter. The fatal accident occurred during a hunt near the southwestern town of Simitli.
Also in December, two people, including the Executive Director of the state-owned National Sport Base EAD, shot each other to death during a hunt.
