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.
